asked the Postmaster-General the approximate number of radio sets in this country which are estimated to he out of repair and unserviceable; and whether, as it is desirable that broadcasting should be available to the largest possible number of listeners, he will arrange for every reasonable encouragement and facility to be accorded to efficient wired relay service operators, who could, in certain areas, meet the needs of listeners with a minimum of expenditure of the materials now in short supply?

I have no information of the number of radio sets out of repair and unserviceable. The suggestion in the second part of the Question is already being met.
