§ Mr. Chetwynd
asked the Postmaster-General if he will give the substance of the replies he has received from the Governments of Spain and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in reply to his approach to them concerning interference with the Home Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation in the North-East; and when he anticipates that this interference will cease.
§ Mr. Ness Edwards
The reply from the Spanish Administration indicated their desire to avoid such interference and promised an early revision of the present situation. I am not yet able to say when the interference will cease, but I have replied emphasising the seriousness and urgency of the matter. The Russian Administration has not yet replied.
