asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works whether he is aware of the desire of Members of the House of Commons to have, as early as possible, all available authentic information about operations in progress; and if he will, therefore, arrange for an efficient wireless receiving set to be installed in some convenient and accessible place in the precincts of the House.

Yes, Sir. A wireless receiving set has been installed in the Committee Room corridor on the first floor, outside Room No. 13. If Members consider that the set might conveniently be placed in some other position I would suggest that they approach the Authorities of the House.

Will my lion. Friend see that this new set is more efficiently maintained than its predecessor?

I understand that the Post Office have given a good set, and I suggest that we should try it.

Was it given by the Government, the Post Office, or by some private person?
