§ 1. Mr. William Teeling
asked the Postmaster-General what is the supervision exercised at the B.B.C. by British subjects over broadcasting news to Siam by the Siamese Editor of the Siamese section of the B.B.C.
§ The Postmaster-General (Mr. Wilfred Paling)
I understand from the British Broadcasting Corporation that supervision over the work of the Siamese Editor is exercised by the Head of the Corporation's Far Eastern Department, who is a British subject.
§ Mr. Teeling
Is the right hon. Gentleman equally sure that the gentleman supervising the talks speaks Siamese and, if not, how can he cut off the speech of a broadcaster to Siam who said something not suitable to this country?
§ Sir Waldron Smithers
May I ask the Postmaster-General whether he will ask the B.B.C. to exercise stricter supervision of all foreign broadcasts?
Mr. Wilson Harris
Would it not be possible to get a pair of Siamese twins of mixed parentage and set them to supervise each other?
