HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 c192W
62. Mr. Thorpe

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations were made by his Department to the British Broad casting Corporation in connection with the Corporation's decision to terminate their Hebrew Service; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Whitlock

As my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary informed my hon. Friend the Member for York on the 26th of July, the decision to terminate the British Broadcasting Corporation's broadcasts in Hebrew was taken by Her Majesty's Government after a careful review in which the views of the British Broadcasting Corporation were taken into account.—[Vol. 769, c. 240–1.]
