HC Deb 10 August 1916 vol 85 cc1199-200
9. Major Sir C. HUNTER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if any fresh and more stringent Regulations have lately been issued as to the sending of books to prisoners of war in Germany?


The instructions on this matter which are in force were communicated to the Press on the 23rd June, and came into force from the 1st July, since which date no fresh, and consequently no more stringent, Regulations have been issued. I will send my hon. and gallant Friend a copy of the Regulations, and he will then be able to see exactly how the matter stands.

Major Sir C. HUNTER

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that very simple books, such as nursery rhyme books, have been refused?


I am not aware of it.
