HC Deb 05 June 1918 vol 106 cc1594-5W

asked the Home Secretary if the offices of the No-Conscription Fellowship have recently been raided and copies seized of a pamphlet entitled "Scraps of Paper"; and, if so, on what grounds and by what authority this pamphlet has been seized, seeing that the pamphlet has no reference to the War or peace and cannot be regarded as coming under Regulation 27 c of the Defence of the Realm Act?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The leaflets were seized under Defence of the Realm Regulation 51, and the question whether proceedings shall be taken in respect to them is now under consideration.
