§ 45. Mr. RHYS DAVIES
asked the Postmaster-General whether he can state the number of telegrams referring to lotteries that have been held up during the past 12 months?
§ Sir E. BENNETT
It would, I think, be contrary to the public interest to give the information for which the hon. Gentleman asks.
§ Sir WILLIAM DAVISON
Why should it be contrary to the public interest The question does not ask for any particular telegrams. Surely the House ought to know how many telegrams have been held up.
§ Mr. DAVIES
Will the hon. Gentleman go into this matter again and see whether we cannot have this information, because it does not appear clear to the House that it is wrong to give the information?
