§ 18. Sir A. WILLIAMSON
asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is necessary to maintain the censorship of cables and mails to and from South America; and if, in view of the delay occasioned by the censorship, he will give instructions for it to be removed?
§ Mr. BILLING
Willnot the hon. and gallant Gentleman consider the advisability now in peace time of reviewing the whole question of the censorship throughout the world as far as this country is concerned?
The War Office is at present considering this amongst other questions in the light of the signature of peace by Germany.
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
Why now that peace has been signed should the censorship be necessary on letters and cables to South America?
The Secretary of State himself has spent considerable time in the study of this question and asked me to give this answer.
