HC Deb 04 August 1947 vol 441 cc955-6
Sir Waldron Smithers

On a point of Order. Before we get on with the further Business for today, Mr. Speaker, may I call your attention to the fact that the B.B.C. this morning omitted to commence their broadcast programmes by playing the National Anthem on the occasion of the birthday of Her Majesty the Queen? Will you, Sir, as the First Commoner, summon the directors of the B.B.C. to the Bar of this House as traitors to their King and country?

Mr. Speaker

That is not a matter for me to deal with as a point of Order; it is a matter for the House.

Sir W. Smithers

But will you deal with it, Sir?
