§ Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies which of the Dominions and Colonies were approached, subsequently to the Paris Conference in October, 1912, with a view to the adoption of the recommendations made by the British delegates for the establishment of time signals at wireless stations in such Dominions and Colonies; and whether any, and, if so, what replies were received from them in relation thereto.
The Dominions and Colonies concerned were approached a year ago with a view to their adopting the recommendations made by the British delegates for the establishmnnt of time signals at their wireless stations. Three of the Governments concerned (Canada, New Zealand and Hong Kong) have agreed in principle to the proposal. No final decision has yet been notified by the other three Governments.
