§ 18. Mr. LEES-SMITH
asked the Home Secretary whether the new Advisory Committee appointed to report whether pamphlets, leaflets, etc., should be destroyed under Regulation 51 of the Defence of the Realm Acts will be required to deal with any cases of pamphlets, leaflets, etc., which have not been made the subject of a prosecution?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
Are we to understand that on the advice of this Committee the right hon. Gentleman is going to destroy pamphlets and leaflets which do not contain a single illegal sentence, and which he does not dare to prosecute before a Court of law?
§ Sir G. CAVE
No, Sir; the hon. Member has no right to assume that. The Committee will act, I have no doubt, according to the Regulations.
