HC Deb 19 February 1958 vol 582 cc152-3W
87. Mrs. L. Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if broadcasts from Radio Athens to Cyprus are still being jammed; and at whose request.

Mr. Profumo

The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes". As I have previously explained, the jamming of these broadcasts began and continues as a matter of Her Majesty's Government's policy, although the occasions on which it is necessary have diminished since the operation began, and I hope will continue to diminish.
