HC Deb 01 December 1920 vol 135 cc1250-1
88. Mr. HURD

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether His Majesty's Government intends to aid in any way the proposal of Reuter's Agency to establish a new cable service for news between this country and Canada; if so, what is the exact nature of the proposed arrangement; and will any accruing advantages in the way of reduced cable rates or otherwise be open equally to all news agencies and Anglo-Canadian news correspondents?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Lieut.-Colonel Amery)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave him on 22nd November, to which at present I can add nothing.


Has nothing happened since the question, in view of the detailed statement made in the Press on the subject?

Lieut.-Colonel AMERY

No, nothing of which I am aware.

Forward to
