HC Deb 19 June 1924 vol 174 c2324
72. Mr. E. BROWN

asked the Postmaster-General whether there is any censorship of news transmitted from wireless stations in England; if there is any official bulletin of news prepared by any Government Department; and whether Press messages are transmitted as public matter or as private telegrams?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. A bulletin of news is prepared by the Foreign Office and transmitted daily by wireless telegraphy from the Post Office station at Oxford at noon, 8 p.m., and midnight, Greenwich mean time. No restrictions are placed on the use of Government messages. Other messages may be covered by copyright.
