§ 1. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware that letters sent by business firms in this country to business firms in Germany are frequently opened by the Belgian military authorities; whether he is aware of the reason for this censorship; and whether representations have been made or will be made by His Majesty's Government to the Belgian Government on this subject?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
The only action of the kind that has come to my notice is the censorship exercised by the Allied military authorities (including the Belgian) in occupied Germany for military reasons. I am not aware than any practical inconvenience has been caused. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
