HC Deb 19 April 2000 vol 348 c499W
Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many countries receive BBC World Service broadcasts. [119590]

Mr. Hain

The BBC World Service broadcasts to all countries in the world. The latest weekly global audience figure of 151 million is based on surveys of listeners in 122 countries. There are very few places where the World Service cannot be received. But in a number of places it is difficult or impossible to measure audiences.
