Vol. 89 No. 10

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Daily Broadcast—Suggested Extension.

asked the Minister for Posts and Telegraphs whether, in view of the fact that the daily broadcast of gramophone records is primarily intended for invalids and persons not able to engage in active work, he will extend the broadcast to 3 p.m.

I much regret that at present I am unable to entertain this suggestion, by reason of the substantial additional expenditure which the extension of hours would involve, as well as of the desirability of restricting electricity consumption during the present emergency.
