Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office. – in the House of Commons on 18th December 1928.
Alert me about debates like this
Mr. L'ESTRANGE MALONE:
asked the Postmaster-General 'whether the British Broadcasting Corporation obtained his approval before deciding on the purchase of new premises; and, if so, whether the question of a national opera house as part of the scheme was considered?
This matter was dealt with by the British Broadcasting Corporation under the general powers which have been conferred upon them, and it was not necessary for them to obtain my approval. The second part of the question does not, therefore, arise.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the individual who desires to promote a British opera house has stated that no Member of this House or of the other place possesses any knowledge of music?
