HC Deb 07 September 1909 vol 10 c1098

May I ask the Postmaster-General whether the statement which appears in "The Times" today that he has acquired the wireless telegraph stations belonging to the Marconi Company is correct?


The announcement which appears in "The Times" was not supplied by the Post Office. The statement is premature, as the arrangements are not yet complete. The negotiations are, moreover, to a certain extent contingent on the success of somewhat similar and simultaneous Post Office negotiations with Lloyds, which also are not yet complete. When the arrangements are finally completed I propose to make a statement on the subject in the House.

NEW MEMBER SWORN.—Arthur Lynch, esquire, for the county of Clare, West Division, in room of James Halpin, esquire, deceased.
