asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware of the general disappointment throughout the country and the Empire at the cancellation of his announced broadcast for 22nd January on his visit to America, and of the broadcasting energy lost to the war effort on the broadcasting stations throughout the world owing to this postponement; and on what date he proposes to make his broadcast to the nation and the Empire?
