HC Deb 16 February 1922 vol 150 cc1247-8W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what journals, daily and weekly, have been suppressed or suspended since martial law was proclaimed in Egypt in 1914; why were they suppressed or suspended, and what are the dates and periods of their suppression or suspension; and how do these compare with the two similar periods preceding the proclamation of marital law?


As I informed the hon. Member on 9th February, I have no material on which to furnish a statement of the nature requested without reference to Egypt. I will supply a full answer as soon as particulars have been obtained.
