asked the Assistant Postmaster General whether, in view of the deterioration that has taken place since the recent change of wavelengths, early steps can be taken to effect an improvement in the reception of B.B.C. programmes in the London area.

I have been asked to reply. According to the B.B.C.'s information, the recent wavelength changes have resulted in a general improvement, not a deterioration of reception, though they are aware that difficulties have arisen in a relatively small number of cases owing to defects in receiving sets. The transmitting arrangements for the London area have been restored to the same high level as before the war.
