HC Deb 30 January 1918 vol 101 c1581W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it is the intention of his Department to issue a Paper Restriction Order, under which no journal can be published without a licence from the Board of Trade; and, if so, when the Order will come into force?


The Paper Restriction Orders of 19th April, 1917, and 8th June, 1917, which are already in force, prohibit the publication without a licence from the Board of Trade of any new newspaper and of any new magazine or other publication issued periodically or in serial parts.
