HC Deb 08 February 1956 vol 548 cc1672-3
57. Mr. Benn

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what plans he has for jamming the anti-British broadcasts by the "Voice of Araby" transmitted from Egypt.

Mr. Nutting

None, Sir.

Mr. Benn

While the Minister's statement will be welcomed in the House, will he give an absolute assurance that the cost of jamming equipment acquired by the Jordanian Government did not come under any terms of our assistance to them?

Mr. Nutting

The cost of radio sets bought by the Jordanian Government in this country was paid for out of their own budget and not out of the Arab Legion subsidy.
