Debain licensing

Hello team,
I was trying to use the debian Jessie package. The debian packages, e.g. gnupg 1.4.18-7.debian has a copyright file whose contents are the following :-
"Files: *

 delete this exception statement from your version."

In this debian package, I do not find any other file with license information.
Can you please let me know whether this license information is of the original package? If so, what could be the license information of the debian package?
