HC Deb 13 August 1940 vol 364 c622W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Minister of Information whether he will take steps to reduce the long delays and detours to which letters and telegrams in the Highlands and Islands protected areas are at present subjected for censorship?

Mr. Nicolson

The importance of accelerating the disposal of letters and telegrams from the protected areas in the Highlands and Islands is fully realised, and steps have recently been taken which it is hoped will avoid unreasonable delay to letters. The delay to telegrams directly attributable to censorship is negligible.
