§ 6. Mr. G. Jeger
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he is aware of the lack of adequate information from Great Britain in Gibraltar; and whether he will consult with the various Government Departments concerned, with a view to action being taken to counter the constant stream of anti-British propaganda being broadcast by radio from Spain and Tangier.
A continuous supply of written and visual material about Britain is sent to Gibraltar through the official information services. I understand that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies hopes to answer a Question next Wednesday on broadcasting for Gibraltar.
The establishment of new radio transmitting stations is not as easy as all that. There are a number of considerations, including international agreements, to be taken into account.
§ Mr. Greenwood
In his general scrutiny of the overseas information services, which he told us last week was taking place, can the right hon. Gentleman say whether he has yet had an opportunity to scrutinise the information which is, in fact, going out from Gibraltar and which my hon. Friend regards as inadequate?
