HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 cc123-4W
93. Mr. Eldon Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is satisfied that reduction of British Broadcasting Corporation overseas broadcasting is in the national interest; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. William Rodgers

There has been no reduction in the total number of broadcasting hours prescribed during the current financial year. Indeed, next year there will be an increase, although it will be necessary to reduce some services to permit the expansion of others.
