§ 31. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
asked the Postmaster-General what official Government broadcasts have been arranged for 26th May next.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
Would it not be in the public interest if the Government thought fit to suggest to the B.B.C. that it might remind members of the general public of their opportunity to vote—say from six o'clock in the evening—so that those people who have not voted might be reminded to do so? Would it not be a further inducement to securing the large poll which all parties desire if the programmes that evening were not so interesting as to keep people glued to their radio or television sets?
I think it will be the general view that there should be no official Government broadcasting on that day.
§ Captain Pilkington
Will my right hon. Friend confirm that there will be no break in continuity among those concerned?
