Mrs. Besant.


IN the House of Lords, on the 1st instant, Lord Sydenham asked: “Has Mrs. Besant issued an imitation postage stamp bearing her effigy and the legend, ‘Interned for God and Country’, and are letters and papers on which this stamp has been placed for propaganda purposes allowed to be transmitted through the post in India?” Lord Islington replied that he had ascertained that some of these stamps on newspapers had reached Singapore. There was no evidence that the stamps had created a harmful effect. It was for the Government of India to deal with the matter and he had telegraphically enquired from India on the subject.
