asked the Postmaster-General what new direction he has recently issued to the British Broadcasting Corporation under Clause 15 (4) of the Corporation's Licence and Agreement, 1952.

On 18th October I gave the Corporation a direction which, besides continuing the present procedure for party political broadcasts arranged for transmission throughout the United Kingdom, also enables them to arrange party political broadcasts from the Corporation's stations in Northern Ireland in connection with General Elections to the Parliament of Northern Ireland. I am arranging for copies of the new direction to be made available in the Library.
