HC Deb 20 November 1945 vol 416 c233
69. Mr. Francis Beattie

asked the Minister of Information why no mention was made in the news bulletin of the B.B.C. of results of the Scottish municipal elections on the night of 6th November and on the morning of 7th November.

Mr. E. J. Williams

No news agency reports on the results of the Scottish municipal elections were available to the B.B.C. in London, and unfortunately the efforts of the B.B.C. Scottish Office to get the information through failed owing to communication difficulties.

Sir William Darling

Will the Minister take steps to see that in future Scottish listeners do not have to rely upon London news agencies for their information, and would he set up an adequate information service in Scotland itself?

Colonel Gomme-Duncan

Is the Minister aware that until a Scottish Board of Directors is set up, we shall never get a satisfactory broadcast in Scotland?
