HC Deb 01 November 1916 vol 86 c1702
57 Mr. LYNCH

asked the Secretary of State for War whether letters written by Australian soldiers in England to their homes in Australia frequently Tail to reach their destinations, and letters written from Australia to Australian soldiers here are frequently intercepted and withheld without any explanation; and, if so, what explanation can be given of such proceedings?


I am not aware that letters posted by Australian soldiers in this country frequently fail to reach the addresses in Australia, or that letters for Australian soldiers here are intercepted and detained. If the hon. Member can give me particulars of any concrete cases, I will have inquiry made.
