HC Deb 28 March 1946 vol 421 cc82-3W
85. Mrs. Ayrton Gould

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that the Post Office research work carried out by Post Office engineers with Government money during the war was transferred to the Cable and Wireless Company, Limited, he will take steps to have this firm put under public control.

Mr. Burke:

I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer about the public ownership of Cable and Wireless Limited on 1st November, 1945.
