That this House congratulates the BBC on the 50th anniversary of the programme Today in Parliament; recalls that the injunctions of the BBC Director General, Sir William Haley, in 1945 that the programme should avoid expressions such a 'pointedly' and 'tartly' and that the report must be unembellished still apply in 1995; and urges the Corporation that a distillation of Today in Parliament, namely, The Week in Parliament, should be included henceforth in the schedules of BBC World Service Radio.
