HC Deb 31 January 1918 vol 101 c1717

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether in cases where it is decided to destroy pamphlets and leaflets under Regulation 51 of the Defence of the Realm Acts an intimation with regard to the decision will be sent to the owners of the pamphlets and leaflets in question?

The SECRETARI of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir George Cave)

I cannot undertake that notice shall be given whenever pamphlets are destroyed, as there is sometimes a difficulty in ascertaining the owners, but I will request the police to give notice if the circumstances permit.
