§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware 2269W that a letter sent to W. G. Corke at Hounslow Barracks, on 11th March, was opened and sent to the governor of Wandsworth Prison;whether it is the custom for the military authorities to intercept private letters and send them to persons who are mentioned in them; and, if not, whether he can explain this occurrence?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
If my hon. and gallant Friend will furnish the name of the regiment to which Corke belongs and his regimental number, I will have inquiries made.
