HC Deb 25 May 1936 vol 312 cc1618-9
22. Commander LOCKER-LAMPSON

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the anti-English propaganda from the Italian radio stations, which has been wirelessed weekly in the local languages to the inhabitants of India and Palestine; and whether he will make representations to the Italian Government?


The position referred to by my hon. and gallant Friend is being carefully watched and representations have been recently made to the Italian Government with regard to anti-British broadcasts from Italian stations. I am not, however, at present in a position to add anything material to the replies which have been given to previous questions of a similar nature.


Can we broadcast to Ethiopia and in the Ethiopian language?


I cannot; I do not know whether the hon. Member can.
