The B.B.C. inform me that, on this occasion, a reference to the speech of the hon. Member for Peckham (Mr. Silkin) on 5th August was made in their 6 o'clock news bulletin. Just as newspapers have to change the items of news which they report in their various editions, so the B.B.C. have to vary their news bulletins according to the demands at the moment. For this reason they regret that it did not prove possible to make further references in later bulletins to the admirable speech by the hon. Member.
