HC Deb 11 December 1945 vol 417 cc222-3
62. Colonel Gomme-Duncan

asked the Minister of Information whether, in view of the dissatisfaction in Scotland with the present system and quality of broadcasting, he will set up a Scottish board of directors for the control and development of this service in Scotland.

Mr. E. J. Williams

I understand from the B.B.C. that the Scottish Regional programme, which was restarted in July last, has been widely appreciated by Scottish listeners.

Colonel Gomme-Duncan

Is the Minister aware that he has been completely misinformed in this matter, and that the people of Scotland are highly dissatisfied with broadcasting as it is at present?

Mr. Williams

I gather that the people of Scotland are no more dissatisfied than the people of England or Wales.

Mrs. Jean Mann

Could my right hon. Friend say who in Scotland is satisfied with the B.B.C.?
