HC Deb 21 July 1914 vol 65 c240
20. Sir J. D. REES

asked what has been the cause of the delay in acquiring sites in India for Imperial wireless stations?


The delay is due to the site originally selected at Bangalore having proved to be unsuitable owing to the decision to establish direct communication between India and Egypt instead of East Africa, to which reference was made in the reply given by the Postmaster-General on the 16th inst to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for Central Finsbury. Another site has been provisionally selected, and is at present under examination by experts representing the Government of India and the Marconi Company.
