HC Deb 13 November 1928 vol 222 c713W

asked the Postmaster-General whether his Department has considered the position of television; whether he considers it is necessary to revise the present Wireless Telegraphy Acts; and whether, if the Royal Charter granted to the British Broadcasting Company does not include the transmission of photographs by such methods as the Fultograph process, any application has been received to increase the scope of the power of the British Broadcasting Company to include television?

Viscount WOLMER

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given on the subject of television to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) on 8th November. I do not consider it necessary to revise the Wireless Telegraphy Acts or the Royal Charter of the British Broadcasting Corporation. The question whether any modification is desirable in the terms of the Corporation's licence is at present under consideration.
