Mr. WICKHAM STEED: How the House received the Budget


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
'BUDGET DAY,' when the Chancellor of the D Exchequer introduces his Budget for the year, is always one of the occasions on which the House of Commons is packed to its utmost capacity, and the Budget speech is awaited with a degree of expectancy not very often raised nowadays by any Parliamentary speech. And this is only natural, for this afternoon Mr. Churchill tells us all how much we must contribute to the State, directly and indirectly, out of our own income next year. Last year, for the first time, the Budget speech and its reception by the House wore described over the microphone, the same evening, by Mr. Wickham Steed ; and everyone who heard it will welcome the opportunity of again hearing so important an event summed up by a famous journalist and publicist with exceptional experience of public affairs.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
