The strange vagaries of the Press. Bureau were criticised hi the House of Commons recently by Sir "William Bui), who called attention to the, delay in relentiiiLT information which had reached the, newspapers, and instance! the o:ise of t'i" sinking of tha Xiger. '' It- has also interfered in matters othec than those of a military nature," said Sir Will-am, '"'sucli. for instance, p.? article! elenouneinsr the spy danger, criticism of the transport of the wounded, the delay :n. paring money to soldiers and their wives and dependents, and also questions of foreign policy dealing with neutral countries-. In fact, the censorship is in my opinion in danger of becoming an. autocratic authority which Mould stifle, .iH criticism." Sir Stanley Buckmafiter (the, who is Director of the Press Bureau) said that it was his wish, as Press Censor, that it formation, should not '■>* allowed to pee the light unless it- was teste-! by the consideration whether its publication would afford any assistance to the enemy, or unduly depress our people, or disclose the movements of our troops or our Fleet, or directly or indirectly imperil the national sat-My. ' "T am amazed -it the si; tement that the -discus-ion of foreign policy choald not be subject, to the <:<vsorship. Timfl and again during this wsr articles Lave. bc< n published by newspapers without the. authority of the Press Bureau whi-..-h have grievously impaired our relations with neutral Powers. and have, rendered .still rnoro difficult the deli.-ato and difficult, task io b<> discharge,) bv life Foioign Secretary.
