HC Deb 26 June 1917 vol 95 c207W

asked the Undersecretary of State for War whether he is aware that the publication of an article based on the praise given to a Welsh battalion by Sir Douglas Haig was stopped by the Censor, although the article contained neither dates, name, or places, nor even the description of the battalion: and will he explain on what ground praise accorded to Welsh regiments cannot be made public whilst the exploits of other regiments are given full publicity?


If my hon. Friend is thinking of an article which appeared last week, he is under a misapprehension in supposing that it was stopped. It was referred to General Headquarters for censorship and has since been published in the ordinary way.
