§ 61. Mr. Ellis Smith
asked the Minister of Information whether he will cause the B.B.C. to make arrangements for relaying suitable Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and United States broadcasts each week?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Information (Mr. Thurtle)
The B.B.C. regularly broadcast programmes from the U.S.A. for listeners in this country and they are examining the possibility of similar relays or recordings of Soviet programmes.
§ Mr. Thurtle
I entirely agree with what my hon. Friend says and we are anxious to do all we can to facilitate these broadcasts.
