HC Deb 12 May 1924 vol 173 c902
61. Mr. BAKER

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the Windsor Radio Society has been informed that wireless sets at Windsor are adversely affected by serious oscillation; and whether he will state what practical steps he can take to minimise this nuisance in this and other districts?


No complaints have been received by the Post Office concerning interference with the reception of broadcast programmes in the Windsor district by the misuse of reaction by persons in possession of valve receiving sets. Such misuse is generally the result of want of knowledge; and the British Broadcasting Company, the wireless societies, the wireless trade and the Post Office are endeavouring in various ways to promote the more careful use of apparatus in this respect. The Post Office has made representations to a number of persons who are suspected of causing interference; and, as a last resource, a wireless licence could be cancelled in any case in which the persistent misuse of reaction could be proved.
