HC Deb 02 February 1967 vol 740 c151W
54. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Postmaster-General why he is now enforcing the clause in the amateur sound licence "A" which imposes a speed of not more than 12 words per minute in sending the station call sign; and whether he will bring the rule into line with more accepted rates of transmission.

Mr. Edward Short

There is no new policy in respect of this rule; amateurs have been required to comply with it since 1st June, 1954. I think it is a sensible rule and I have no reason to suppose that it is not acceptable to amateurs generally.
