HC Deb 15 November 1938 vol 341 cc697-8W
Mr. T. Morris

asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the periodic broadcasting of information on British affairs and British policy to Europe in general so as to avoid the disadvantages of the inadequate knowledge of the subject which was especially manifest during the recent international crisis?

Mr. Butler

I understand that the news bulletins which are now being broadcast by the B.B.C. in German, French and Italian, and their news bulletins in English in the home and Empire services normally include summaries of important Ministerial speeches and announcements and of important Parliamentary Debates, and news of the main events in this country and the Empire. This will, I hope, adequately meet the purpose which my hon. Friend has in view.
