asked the Postmaster-General how many persons employed by the British Broadcasting Corporation are aliens.
A total of 318 aliens are in temporary employment by the British Broadcasting Corporation.
In view of that very serious statement, the well-known Communist technique of infiltration and the enormous power for good or ill of the B.B.C., will the right hon. Gentleman, in the national interest, keep the personnel and the material broadcast under very close review?
The hon. Gentleman can be assured that that is being done.
Is it not a fact that most of these aliens were employed by the B.B.C. during the war and gave most loyal service?
That is certainly so in the majority of cases.
