HC Deb 03 May 1927 vol 205 cc1447-8
31. Colonel DAY

asked the Postmaster-General whether any negotiations have been entered into between the British Broadcasting Corporation and various theatrical and variety interests for the purpose of finding a basis for reasonable working arrangements so that permission can be obtained by the British Broadcasting Corporation from the various theatrical managements to allow star artists already under contract to broadcast?

Viscount WOLMER

This is a matter primarily within the responsibility of the British Broadcasting Corporation, and I have no information as to details of any such negotiations or discussions.

Colonel DAY

Have any representations been made at all to the British Broadcasting Corporation, as the Noble Lord has to answer for them in this House?

Viscount WOLMER

I say I have no knowledge of any representations that have been made to them.
