Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Safeguarding of “Radio Review” Employees.


andMr. McQuillan asked the Minister for Posts and Telegraphs whether he is satisfied that in the recent acquisition of the paper Radio Review by Telefís Éireann the welfare and livelihood of the employees of the Radio Review have been fully safeguarded.

The publication of a weekly programme journal is one of the normal functions of a broadcasting organisation and my role in the matter is to ensure that in starting a journal of its own Radio Éireann will not encroach unduly on the field of private enterprise. The position of the staff of Radio Review is presumably a matter between the owners of Radio Review and the Authority.
