§ Captain ERSKINE-BOLST
asked the Postmaster General what is the number of relay wireless stations at present licensed by him in this country; what is the approximate total number of subscribers for which they cater; and what is the number of staff employed by him to ensure that those in charge of the stations adhere to the terms of the licences granted to them by him.
§ Sir K. WOOD
The number of wireless exchanges licensed on 31st March last was 327, and the total number of subscribers served by these exchanges was 204,475. No staff is employed expressly for the purpose of ensuring that wireless exchange proprietors adhere to the terms of their licences. A certain amount of such work is necessary, but this is carried out by Post Office staff in conjunction with other duties.
