HC Deb 06 February 1939 vol 343 c636
63. Brigadier-General Spears

asked the Postmaster-General whether the broadcasts of news bulletins in Italian have been finally discontinued; and, if so, for what reason?

Sir W. Womersley

A news bulletin in Italian is broadcast daily on a short wavelength; but the simultaneous transmission of these bulletins on a medium wave has been discontinued as the British Broadcasting Corporation consider that the short-wave transmission is likely to be more clearly received.
