HC Deb 16 February 1922 vol 150 cc1222-3W

asked the Home Secretary if he will have inquiries made into the bullet and missing-word competitions which appear in certain papers and grant the public the protection it is entitled to from his Department?


Whether a missing-word competition contravenes the law is a question for the court to decide on the facts in each case, and I am advised that the competitions are generally so conducted as to comply with the law as laid down in the decided cases.
