HC Deb 03 June 1924 vol 174 cc1090-1W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that numerous complaints continue to be made that the programmes of the British Broadcasting Company are subject to interference by jamming; whether the recent investigations with direction-finding apparatus has yielded any results; and, if not, what further steps are proposed?


Presumably the hon. Member refers to the difficulties experienced in the South East of England on Tuesday, the 27th May, which were found, on investigation, to be due to the inadvertent use of the wavelength of the London Broadcasting Station by a Broadcasting Station in Paris. Attention was called to the matter by telegraph on the 29th May, with the result that the wavelength of the station concerned was immediately altered so as to prevent further interruption.
