|1.||Executive proposes, as I understand it, "to exercise censorship over all material likely to infringe the civil or criminal law of New Zealand, i.e., libel, sedition, obscenity."|
|2.||Executive retains the right of negative censorship to prevent the publication of errors in fact.|
|3.||That is the extent of Executive's desire for censorship.|
|4.||The question of an "impartial censor" will be considered by the Executive at its next meeting. At this stage, however, I cannot see any advantage of an appointment from the N.Z.U.P.C. It is doubtful whether Executive has the power to allow censorship by one who, not being the publisher of "Salient", has no legal responsibility for "Salient".|
