§ 19. Mr. Wootton-Davies
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the British Council has ceased to subsidise papers in overseas countries; and what aggregate loss has been sustained in so doing.
§ Mr. Eden
The British Council still wholly finances or partially subsidises five journals overseas. One of these appears daily, one weekly, two monthly and one 507 quarterly. Since the British Council first started this form of its activities in 1938, it has subsidised a number of journals for various periods, at a total cost of £28,512.
