§ 11. Sir Waldron Smithers
asked the Postmaster-General how many times have the powers to refrain from broadcasting any matter been exercised since the licence and agreement between his Department and the British Broadcasting Corporation dated 29th November 1946
§ Sir W. Smithers
In view of the increasing Communist tendency of the B.B.C., will the right hon. Gentleman in future have a close watch kept on the broadcasts from a security point of view, and use his powers fairly?
§ Mr. Blackburn
While not accepting the statement of the hon. Member opposite, may I ask my right hon. Friend to consider the case of the third programme, in which "Soviet Point of View" causes a great deal of offence.
