HC Deb 23 August 1945 vol 413 c775
34. Mr. Sloan

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the prohibition in respect of the publication of the daily newspaper, "National Herald," will now be withdrawn, the printing plant restored, and compensation for damage and loss made to the owners.

Mr. A. Henderson

This is a matter for the authorities in India; but I am ascertaining the facts from them and will inform the hon. Member of the result.

Mr. Sloan

Will the Minister impress upon the Government of India that now the war is over and there is no danger in regard to security, it is high time a fair measure of freedom was extended to India?

Mr. Henderson

I think my hon. Friend may take it that the Government of India will take all relevant considerations into account.
