HC Deb 11 June 1940 vol 361 cc1152-3W
Mr. Stokes

asked the Minister of Economic Warfare whether he considers the present examination of mails for contraband and for enemy export control is satisfactory; and what steps he proposes to take to remedy any deficiencies there may be?

Mr. Dalton

No examination of mails can be considered entirely satisfactory unless all mails are examined. Extensive re-organisation of the Censorship Department has recently taken place and is already producing greatly improved results. All practicable steps are being taken to render the examination as complete as possible.
