asked the Postmaster-General whether he can now make any statement on the Ullswater Broadcasting Report and the policy of the Government in relation to its recommendations?

Copies of the report of the Broadcasting Committee will be available this evening. The recommendations of the Committee are still under consideration, and I am not yet in a position to make any statement as to the policy of the Government in regard to them. I should like, however, to take the opportunity of expressing the gratitude of the Government to Lord Ullswater and the members of the Committee for the comprehensive review of the broadcasting service which they have undertaken.

Will an opportunity be given to debate the whole question before the new charter is put into force?

It is not part of my duty to arrange these matters, but I am sure there will be ample opportunity for discussion long before the charter expires at the end of the year.
