HC Deb 24 July 1967 vol 751 c30W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will increase medium wavelength broadcasts in Arabic to the Middle East.

Mr. William Rodgers

We do not intend at present to increase broadcasting hours, which are already substantial. The new relay station at Masirah, which should be operating by next year, will give increased coverage for our Arabic programmes.
