HC Deb 23 March 2004 vol 419 c749W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will raise with his EU counterparts the possible establishment of a European Radio Asia to broadcast to North Korea, China, Tibet and Burma. [161496]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

I have no plans at present to raise with EU partners the establishment of a European Radio Asia.

Radio broadcasters in the UK and other EU Member States already transmit programmes into Asia, notably the BBC World Service.
