§ 40. Mr. WALTER GUINNESS
asked the Postmaster-General whether Marconi's Wireless Telegraph Company have acquired the rights outside France and Germany to use Dr. Goldschmidt's high frequency alternator and other wireless apparatus; and, if so, whether these Patents will be used for the stations of the imperial wireless chain?
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Captain Norton)
It is understood that Marconi's Wireless Telegraph Company have acquired the rights to which the hon. Member refers. It is not at present the intention to use any of the patents at the stations of the Imperial Wireless Chain.
§ Mr. W. GUINNESS
In view of the unfavourable opinions of the Goldschmidt system which were expressed by the Postmaster-General at the end of last Session, when he refused to allow the owners to tender for the Imperial Wireless Chain, can the hon. and gallant Gentleman explain why the Marconi Company have found the Goldschmidt patent worth buying?
