Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Information. – in the House of Commons on 16th October 1941.
Alert me about debates like this
(by Private Notice) asked the Minister of Information what steps can be and are being taken by the British Broadcasting Corporation to deal with enemy interference with British broadcasts?
The B.B.C. have already taken steps which have had the effect of reducing this interference. Other plans are in hand.
Is it not necessary for very drastic action to be taken in this matter, as it may lead to the complete wiping out of the British Broadcasting Corporation as it exists to-day?
This is a technical matter, and I do not think that I can add anything to my answer, but the hon. and gallant Member may be assured that the B.B.C. is fully alive to the danger of such interference.
Will the Minister bear in mind the amusement value of such interruptions?
