HC Deb 23 July 1924 vol 176 c1340W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the German Government has introduced wireless receivers in certain prisons in order to test the educational value of selected broadcast programmes: and whether he will examine the possibilities of such a development, in this country?


This matter has already been carefully considered by the Prison Commissioners, but they have not thought it desirable to make use of the broadcast programmes in prisons.
