Seanad Éireann - Volume 24 - 13 November, 1940
Press Censorship—Motion Withdrawn.
The following motion appeared on the Order Paper in the name of Senator Sir John Keane:—
That, in the opinion of this House, the manner in which the powers of Press censorship are being exercised is unreasonable.

Sir John Keane: With regard to the motion which appears on the Order Paper in my name, there does not seem to be much prospect of its being reached until possibly a rather late hour to-night. I have had certain conversations with the Minister, and he has quite convinced me that in its present form it is rather too wide and somewhat dangerous. I have agreed with the Minister to amend it to deal with domestic issues only. If the House will agree, I am prepared to withdraw the motion in its present form, and put it down in a new form for the next meeting.
