BBC World Service concerns

Monday, February 7, 2011

During a debate in the House of Commons about the re-organisation of the BBC World Service Meg asked the Foreign Secretary to confirm that services would not be reduced for countries suffering oppression.

Meg Munn (Sheffield, Heeley) (Lab/Co-op): The BBC World Service provides a vital link to the outside world for oppressed countries and isolated countries such as Burma. The Foreign Secretary will remember the important role that the Burmese service played during the demonstrations back in 2007. Will he assure the House that those considerations will be taken into account in the future, to ensure that we do not pull such important services away from those countries?

Mr Hague: Yes, the hon. Lady is absolutely right, and I certainly would not agree to the closure of services for Burma, even if it were proposed. The considerations that she underlines, such as the help that the World Service provides to people in oppressed countries, must always be important in the decisions that we make about its services.
