HC Deb 31 July 1919 vol 118 cc2313-4W

asked the Home Secretary whether, in the instructions issued to the postal or other censor to guide him in the exercise of his duties during the period of the War, the correspondence of any persons was specially exempted from examination; and, if so, whether any list of such persons can now be given and the nationality of origin of any who are not British-born subjects?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply. Correspondence addressed to certain persons who held, or had held, important positions in His Majesty's services was from time to time exempted from censorship. The persons in question were all British-born. No useful purpose would be served by giving this list, which was very short and subject to variation.
