§ 59. Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon
asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that the Southampton Borough Council have resolved not to ratify the agreement which has been proposed on behalf of the Post Office for the installation by the Postmaster-General of wires and apparatus in the borough for an experimental wireless relay service, he will say what course he intends to follow in the circumstances?
§ Major Tryon
The question is under consideration. I have not yet been informed why the council have withdrawn their invitation. The Post Office are actively engaged in making technical and scientific researches into various systems of broadcasting by wire for the information of the Government and the House before a decision has to be reached about the future of the relay services.
