HC Deb 22 December 1919 vol 123 c1021
Sir J. BUTCHER (by Private Notice)

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to a paper calling itself the "European Press," which is published in Berlin by a German company, which is sent here by post and distributed in this country through the British Post Office, and which contains matter highly offensive to the head of a friendly State, namely, President Wilson, and is calculated to stir up strife between this country and the United States?


I have seen a copy of the paper, which the hon. and learned Gentleman has sent me. The object of the articles to which he refers is no doubt, to make difficulty between this country and the United States, and the matter is under consideration.


Will the right hon. Gentleman consult, with the authorities of the Post Office to prevent so grave an abuse of the privileges of the British Post Office?


That is being considered.
