asked the Postmaster-General why the British Broadcasting Corporation publication, "London Calling," containing foreign broadcasts, cannot be ordered by any person resident in the United Kingdom.

I understand that distribution is confined to overseas subscribers as these programmes are not normally heard by listeners in this country.
