HC Deb 19 April 1917 vol 92 cc1861-2W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the attention of the censorship has been called to the telegram from the correspondent of the "Morning Post" newspaper in Petro-grad, published in Tuesday's issue of that paper; why publication has been allowed of an accusation against the Council of Workmen's and Soldiers' Deputies that, with the aid of German gold, several hundred paid agitators have been sent out to teach the scattered populations of one-sixth of the globe what is the meaning of a republic; whether the whole tenor of the article is an attack on the Council of Workmen's and Soldiers' Deputies who organised the recent revolution; and whether the export of this newspaper will be prohibited?


The attention of the War Office had not been drawn to this telegram, which is not of a military nature.
