§ 51. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Prime Minister whether any steps have been taken to find out how the un- 1788 authorised terms of armistice with Germany came to be communicated to two daily papers on Thursday last?
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
May I ask whether the premature publication of these terms is not intended to prejudice the decision of the Versailles Council as to what terms should be granted?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
No, Sir; as it happens, I did not see those terms. If they had represented the decision of the Council I should have thought it the duty of the Government to take action in the matter; but I am told they do not in the least represent the decision of the Council, and it is obvious the Government cannot deal with such a case.
§ Mr. PRINGLE
Is it necessary for newspapers making statements with regard to either peace terms or armistice terms to submit those statements to the Censor before publication?
