HC Deb 08 July 1913 vol 55 c240W

asked the Postmaster-General (1) whether, if the fact is established that the Goldschmidt system, while possessing many practical advantages over other systems, is also more economical for long distance work, he will consider the advisability of asking the company owning the system to tender for the contract for the Imperial wireless chain; and (2) whether, in view of the fact that the success now announced of the Goldschmidt system in establishing wireless communication across the Atlantic was anticipated by the expert Advisory Committee in paragraph 20 of their Report, he will take an early opportunity of inquiring of this Committee their opinion of this latest development and its possible effect upon wireless telegraphy generally?


I have no official information as to the results of the experiments made within the last few days with the Goldschmidt system, but I am making immediate inquiries.
