The World : British Press Curb Eased

Britain's High Court relaxed injunctions obtained by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's government banning publication of the memoirs of former intelligence officer Anthony Cavendish. The court said The Observer and The Sunday Times may print excerpts of the memoirs as long as they do not relate to national security matters. Thatcher's government obtained the interim injunctions as soon as it learned that the two London newspapers were planning to print the excerpts in today's editions. The Observer, which was served with an injunction Friday, successfully appealed for the restrictions to be relaxed.
