§ 24. Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the Postmaster-General whether during the period of the General Election it is proposed to permit the broadcasting of any political speeches; and, if so, under what conditions and restrictions?
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Viscount Wolmer)
I cannot yet say what political speeches, if any, will he broadcast by the British Broadcasting Corporation during the General Election nor can I say upon what conditions such broadcasts may take place. I understand that the British Broadcasting Corporation have the matter under consideration.
§ Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
Can the Assistant Postmaster-General say on what particular issue the conference which was held recently broke down?
§ Lieut.- Commander KENWORTHY
May I ask whether the Postmaster-General is taking any active interest in this matter, or is it being allowed to drift on between the political offices concerned?
