§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Home Secretary how many warrants are out authorising the opening and examination of private correspondence and letters addressed to persons in this country; whether such opening and examination of letters is authorised by him for political reasons: and, if so, in how many cases?
§ Mr. SHORTT
It would be contrary to the public interest to give particulars. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative, and the third question does not arise.
