FREEDOM OF PRESS
Early Ending To Australian Censorship WHEN WAR WITH JAPAN ENDS Rec. 2 p.m. CANBERRA, this day. The Minister of Information, Mr. Calwell, stated to-day that the application of publicity censorship to the Australian Press would ceaseimmediately the Prime Minister had announced that the Commonwealth was no longer at war with Japan. Because the interests of other United Nations and of the Australian forces were involved, the Minister said, the question of removal of censorship, from radio broadcasts and outgoing Press messages was being discussed with the appropriate authorities and the Australian services. It could be taken for granted that as soon as the Japanese forces were no longer in a position to take offensive action all remaining forms of publicity censorship • would be abolished.
