§ 44. Mr. James Griffiths
asked the Minister of Information why the Labour party's Interim Report on Post-War Reconstruction, which has created public interest and has been referred to widely in the Press, was ignored in the broadcast bulletins?
§ The Minister of Information (Mr. Brendan Bracken)
I am informed by the Governors of the B.B.C. that the report was not mentioned in the news bulletins at the time of publication because it was described as an interim document issued prior to discussions at regional conferences and at the Annual Conference of the Labour party. I am told that on further consideration the Corporation have come to the conclusion that a reference to the report ought not to have been omitted from the current news and have asked the secretary of the party to accept their assurances that the omission was made in all good faith.
