HC Deb 10 March 1925 vol 181 c1148W

asked the Postmaster-General what is the present position with regard to the Empire wireless chain; and whether any approximate date can be given when any workable scheme may be in operation?


The high-power station which is in course of erection at Rugby is expected to be completed in about eight months' time, A smaller station for communication on the "beam" system with a similar station in Canada, is expected to be completed in September or October next. Orders will be given for the erection of additional beam stations for communication with India, South Africa and Australia as soon as definite arrangements have been made by the Indian and Dominion Governments for the erection of corresponding stations in those countries, and search is now being made for a suitable site for this purpose.
