HC Deb 01 July 1942 vol 381 cc189-90
16. Mr. William Brown

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of events over the past 18 years, he will give an assurance that it is not the policy of the Post Office to allow its function as an operator of overseas telegraphic communications to be assumed by private telegraph companies?

The Postmaster-General (Mr. W. S. Morrison)

The policy of the Post Office in regard to overseas telegraph communications is in harmony with the Recommendations of the Report of the Imperial Wireless and Cable Conference of 1928 and the provisions of the Imperial Telegraphs Act, 1938. No change in this policy is contemplated.
