§ Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will consider making a grant-in-aid to the British Broadcasting Corporation to help defray the costs of the Corporation's education services.
§ Mr. Edward Short
The British Broadcasting Corporation has recently proposed that some of the cost of the Corporation's educational programmes should be defrayed by the Government. This proposal is being carefully examined, but I am not yet able to say what the outcome of this examination will be.
