HC Deb 15 June 1915 vol 72 c545W

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether his notice has been drawn to the fact that the contents bill issued by the "Daily Mail" newspaper on 21st May consisted of the words, "Kitchener's Tragic Blunder"; whether this bill had the sanction of the Press Censor or whether the question of prosecuting the persons responsible for the same for publishing false news has been considered?


No, Sir; my notice has not hitherto been called to the contents bill mentioned. I have already stated that the action which the journal in question saw fit to take has appreciably stimulated the response to Lord Kitchener's appeal.
