HC Deb 16 July 1923 vol 166 c1858

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many foreign stations pick up the wireless bulletin of news prepared in his Department and transmitted through the Leafield Station; and whether, in addition to the credit of 3½d. per word allowed to the Post Office in respect of the original transmission, there is a further credit for each station which receives the messages?


The messages are addressed to all stations, so that it is open to anyone to pick them up. It is impossible to state definitely by how many foreign stations they are received, but an examination of the Continental Press shows that they are taken down and distributed in at least 18 European countries. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.
