HC Deb 26 November 1928 vol 223 c57W

asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of wireless beacons at present in operation; the number in course of erection; and whether sanction has been obtained for any further beacons to be erected around the coast?


There are seven wireless beacons in operation on or around the coasts of Great Britain and the Irish Free State, and seven are in course of erection. Since the reply given to the hon. Member on 24th April last, the erection of wireless beacons at Tory Island and Mizen Head has been sanctioned. These are in addition to the beacons mentioned above.
