§ 34. Sir HARRY BRITTAIN
asked the Postmaster-General whether he can inform the House if steps are being taken to carry out the recommendations of the Committee which he appointed to consider the setting up of the wireless telephone service between Britain and the United States of America for the purpose of achieving complete secrecy in the use of the service?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
Yes, Sir. The problem of ensuring complete secrecy in the trans-Atlantic wireless telephone service is engaging the attention of the Post Office engineering staff in consultation with the technical staff of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company.
§ Colonel DAY
Does the right hon. Gentleman think that one should have to pay £5 a minute for a service which can be heard by other people?
