HC Deb 10 October 1946 vol 427 c94W
Major Beamish

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster approximately how many wireless receiving sets there are in each of the four zones in Germany.

Mr. J. Hynd

Approximate figures for the four zones of Germany, including the respective sectors of Berlin, are: British Zone, 2,800,000; Soviet Zone, 2,100,000; American Zone, 2,000,000; French Zone, 620,000. These figures are based on the number of applications made for wireless licences and, in view of the shortage of spares; in Germany may include a considerable number of unserviceable sets.
