Senator BLAKEY asked the Minister of Defence, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact that the Censor notified the press that no reference could be made to the departure of the First Expeditionary Force until after noon on 18th November, 1914?

2.   If so, how was it that a full account appeared in two morning newspapers of 18th November, which were published several hours before the time fixed by the Censor?
