§ Mr. LYNCH
(by Private Notice) asked the Leader of the House, in the absence of the Prime Minister, whether, in view of the entrance of the United States of America into the War on the side of the Allies, he will cause instructions to be issued that the severe censorship on dispatches sent by newspaper correspondents to America shall be forthwith abolished or relaxed?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The dispatches of American correspondents are always treated with great consideration, and the Censors will, of course, have due regard to the new conditions which have arisen and may arise, subject to the obvious requirements of the situation.
I am afraid I cannot allow that question. I think I have taken a liberal view with regard to these private notice questions, but it is rather an abuse for hon. Members to try to follow them with arguments.
