HC Deb 22 March 1922 vol 152 c500W
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?


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.
