§ 36. Sir FRANCIS FREMANTLE
asked the Postmaster-General whether it is proposed to carry on research work on behalf of the British Broadcasting Corporation at the new Post Office Research Institution at Dollis Hill; and, if so, what sum is to be spent by his Department annually on such research?
§ Sir K. WOOD
No research work is being carried out at Dollis Hill on behalf of the British Broadcasting Corporation, and no such work is in contemplation, but some of the results of the wireless research work of the Post Office are of benefit to broadcast listeners—for example, the development of methods of preventing interference with wireless reception caused by electrical apparatus of various kinds.
§ Sir F. FREMANTLE
Is it not a fact that last year the Post Office received £2,750,000 of revenue from wireless licences, and is it not a good thing that his new research station, on which I congratulate him, should be used for further progressive research work?
