HC Deb 06 November 1950 vol 480 cc594-5
50. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Lord President of the Council if he will amend the terms of reference of the Broadcasting Committee, under the chairmanship of Lord Beveridge, to require them to publish the evidence in full.

Mr. H. Morrison

No, Sir.

Sir W. Smithers

In view of the increasing Communist activities of the B.B.C. as typified last night in the outrageous broadcast called "The Marxist View," would the right hon. Gentleman make certain that none of this anti-Communist evidence is suppressed in the Beveridge Report? May I have a reply? No? Does not that prove that the right hon. Gentleman is a fellow traveller?

Mr. Keeling

Can the Lord President tell the House whether it has been decided that the Exhibition should be open on Sundays?

Mr. Morrison

At the moment we are on matters concerning the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Mr. Speaker

The hon. Member asked a supplementary question to a Question which has not yet been asked.
