§ 23. Mr. H. MORRISON
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will arrange that the British Broadcasting Company shall broadcast weather reports every morning during the hay and corn harvest?
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Viscount Wolmer)
Weather reports prepared by the Meteorological Office are broadcast every morning at 10.30 from the high power station at Daventry, in addition to two reports every evening from all broadcasting stations.
§ Mr. MORRISON
Could not we have it broadcast earlier than 10.30 in the morning, which is rather late for the average farmer?
§ Viscount WOLMER
The information cannot be broadcast until it is received. It has to be collected from many distant points in Europe and on the Atlantic and I understand there is considerable difficulty in getting the information to the British Broadcasting Company earlier than 10.30.
