HC Deb 02 April 1928 vol 215 c1585

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the programme for wireless beacons for the year commencing 1st April has yet been approved; whether the details can now be stated; and whether any will serve the Western Isles?

The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Herbert Williams)

The programme of wireless beacons for the year is not yet finally settled, but I am sending the hon. Member a note showing the beacons which have been approved up to date. The position of these beacons is determined by an expert committee in the interests of shipping generally, and not with the idea of serving particular localities.
