46. Mr. L. Hale
asked the Lord President of the Council when he expects to receive the Report of the Royal Commission on the British Broadcasting Corporation.
§ The Lord President of the Council (Mr. Herbert Morrison)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for Ashford (Mr. Deedes) on 24th October.
While not knowing off-hand the answer which my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member, might I ask him to bear in mind that there is some public anxiety in this matter? Even in another place there has been a temporary display of interest. Would my right hon. Friend urge on the Commission the desirability of making an early report?
§ Mr. Morrison
I asked for the report by the end of the year, and I have no particular reason to think that it will not be available by then.
