§ Mr. Liddall
asked the Minister of Information whether he will see that political broadcasts in the Home and Forces Programme are more fairly arranged, having regard to the allocation of only 70 out of 174 such broadcasts to Conservatives during the past 12 months?
§ Mr. Thurtle
The hon. Member is wrong in supposing that 174 political talks have been broadcast by Members of this House in the past twelve months. That figure includes broadcasts on a variety of subjects which have no relation to politics. But in selecting speakers for political subjects the B.B.C. certainly aim at keeping the balance of parties even.
