I desire to ask the Home Secretary a question with reference to cable communications between this country and the United States. As he knows, a censorship has been established, to which of course nobody will object, but as these cables are being sent in very large quantities to the United States, who naturally take a very keen interest in this struggle, will he see that steps are taken to send to the cable companies an adequate censorship staff so that these cables will not be unduly delayed?

I will represent to my right hon. Friend the Postmaster-General the request made by my hon. Friend.
