HC Deb 20 July 1954 vol 530 cc113-4W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will reconsider the recommendation of the Committee of Inquiry into the Overseas Information Services to discontinue the British Broadcasting Corporation service to Portugal, in view of the ancient alliance between Portugal and this country, and the importance of these programmes in promoting friendship, helping exports to Portugal, and spreading information.

Mr. Nutting

Her Majesty's Government will, naturally, take full account of the considerations raised by my hon. Friend in their examination of the Drogheda Report.
