HC Deb 24 May 1966 vol 729 cc55-6W
70. Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he will take steps to ensure that the British Broadcasting Corporation refuse any co-operation with the Zambian Broadcasting Company in the relaying of British material so long as that company broadcasts incitements to violence to the Rhodesian people.

Mr. Bottomley

Any overseas organisation can pick up and relay programmes put out in the B.B.C.'s Overseas Services if it sees fit. There is no truth in allega- tions that the British Government has supplied transmitters to carry Zambian broadcasts to Rhodesia.
