HC Deb 02 March 1936 vol 309 c986
23. Mr. DAY

asked the Postmaster-General the average number of wireless telegraphy messages that are transmitted to the world by the Post Office station at Rugby; whether these messages are compiled by the Foreign Office or by the news agencies; and whether the Foreign Office pay the usual rate for transmission of these messages?


Three British official news messages are transmitted each week day from the Rugby wireless station for world wide reception. The Foreign Office is responsible for the compilation of the messages and pays the Post Office for the work of transmission.


Can the right hon. and gallant Gentleman say whether they go at specially reduced Press rates?


I must have notice of that question.
