HC Deb 26 July 1950 vol 478 c75W
106. Mr. Profumo

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the reasons why Radio Malaya is unwilling to relay the British Broadcasting Corporation's Far Eastern service daily programme in Malay.

Mr. J. Griffiths

Radio Malaya is not unwilling to relay the B.B.C.'s broadcasts in Malay. It relays these transmissions twice weekly; to relay them daily would mean sacrificing other commitments which are considered to be more urgent in view of the present state of emergency in Malaya.
