HC Deb 11 July 1924 vol 175 cc2632-3W

asked the Postmaster-General how many firms were original members of the British Broadcasting Company; how many have since been added to the register; and whether he can state what effect the great development of broadcasting has had on the finances of the associated companies?


The memorandum and articles of association of the British Broadcasting Company contained the names of seven members, including that of the chairman. It is open to any manufacturer or dealer in British wireless apparatus to become a member of the company; and I understand that there are now approximately 1,400 members on the register. I have no information as to the last paragraph.
