HC Deb 21 June 1938 vol 337 c911W
Mr. T. Morris

asked the Home Secretary whether he has held any consultation with the authorities of the British Broadcasting Corporation with a view to ensuring that the arrangements for broadcasting and televising plays on Sunday are kept within the scope of the Sunday Entertainments Act?

Sir S. Hoare

As I am informed that members of the public are not present on Sundays in studios from which plays are broadcast or televised by the British Broadcasting Corporation, the provisions of the Sunday Entertainments Act would not appear to have any application to the studio arrangements.
