HC Deb 22 February 1927 vol 202 c1574
45. Captain FRASER

asked the Prime Minister if he will give time for a discussion upon the advisability of permitting certain specially selected Front Bench speeches to be broadcast by arrangement between the parties at rare intervals when the importance and general interest of the subject is unquestionable; or if he will set up the Select Committee of both Houses which he told the House he was considering on 25th March, 1925?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

No, Sir; I cannot give time for such discussion. Under the Rules of the House, many opportunities are afforded to hon. Members to bring forward a Motion dealing with this question on a night set apart for Private Members' business. As regards the last part of the question, I am not prepared to set up a Select Committee, as I am unaware of any change of opinion since the reply which I gave on the 22nd March, 1926, to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for North-West Camberwell (Mr. Campbell).

Lieut.-Colonel WATTS-MORGAN

Has not a question been raised already by the hon. Member for East Cardiff (Sir C. Kinloch-Cooke) with regard to this matter?


I object.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Very naturally!
