HC Deb 08 July 1953 vol 517 c1235
34. Mr. Baldwin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what arrangements are being made in Eastern and Central Africa for the sale or distribution of saucepan radios; and how far there is sufficient experience on their use to gauge their utility and effect.

Mr. Lyttelton

The sale and distribution of "saucepan" radio receivers, which have been in use since 1949, is the responsibility of the British firm which manufactures and exports them. I am informed that 25,000 receivers have been sold and that there is evidence, through increasing sales, that they are useful and effective.
