HL Deb 08 July 1915 vol 19 c350

LORD WEARDALE had the following Question on the Paper—

To ask His Majesty's Government whether there is any reason why the system hitherto prevailing, of avoiding or delaying the publication of Despatches interesting to the country in general and particularly to the families of the gallant troops engaged in the operations, should be maintained in the case of the Egyptian Campaign, and that the important. Despatches of the General Commanding relative to the attacks upon the Suez Canal in February and March should not now be published.

The noble Lord said: My Lords, at the request of the War Office I beg to postpone my Question until Wednesday next.
