HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 cc831-2
9. Mr. Bossom

asked the Assistant Post master-General what rights his Department had given, other than those included in the original charter, to the B.B.C. officials; and where these are to be found.

Mr. Burke

I am not aware of any rights to which the terms of the Question would apply.

Mr. Bossom

Will the Assistant Postmaster General see that the B.B.C. do not usurp powers that they were not intended to possess? Is he aware that the public like to hear recordings more than once? I am suggesting that they should consider permitting people they select to make their own records. Why cannot this be done?

Mr. Burke

I am sure that the B.B.C. will take notice of my hon. Friend's suggestion that the public would like to hear certain recordings more than once.

Sir W. Smithers

Ought not the word "rights" to be "lefts"?
