§ 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.
