To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has received about the jamming of BBC radio services in Russia. (94548)

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has not received any representations regarding the jamming of BBC radio services in Russia and the BBC is not aware of any recent efforts to jam its services in Russia. Earlier this year, AM/MW transmissions were briefly interrupted because of a regulatory issue. However, the matter was speedily resolved. All transmissions have since been operating as normal.
