HC Deb 13 November 1917 vol 99 cc206-7
50. Major HUNT

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the apprehension felt and expressed by people in this country, and especially amongst the soldiers, as to the correspondence with this country of Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein, who is employed on the Intelligence Department of the German Army in Berlin, he can give this House and the country the assurance that all letters to and from this prince are examined by the Censor?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer which was given yesterday on this subject to the hon. Member for West Clare by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.

Major HUNT

Did the right hon. Gentleman make it quite clear that all letters to and from this prince were examined by the Censor—it is not clear to me?


My recollection is that he did make it quite clear that all the letters of Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein were treated in the same way as the letters of everyone else, and were controlled by the Censor

Commander WEDGWOOD

Can we be certain that all letters are censored, because all letters are not carefully read?
