HC Deb 11 December 1956 vol 562 c30W
64. Mr. Idwal Jones

asked the Secretary of State for War why a restriction was recently imposed on Service men in Cyprus, for approximately three weeks, preventing them from corresponding with their relatives; and why parents of serving men were not informed.

Mr. John Hare

No such restriction was imposed, and I know of no general delay of mail except for one of up to 48 hours when censorship was first imposed because of impending operations in Egypt
