BBC Panorama Iraqi "supergun" Programme

EDM number 373 in 1990-91, proposed by Doug Hoyle on 29/01/1991.

That this House deeply regrets the decision of the BBC to twice cancel the showing of a Panorama documentary about the role played by the Department of Trade and Industry in the Iraqi `supergun' affair; believes that the programme contains important new information and should be broadcast in the public interest; demands an assurance from the Director General of the BBC that the programme has not been cancelled as a result of political interference and that national security will not be used as an excuse for censoring information embarrassing to the Government; and calls upon the BBC to broadcast the programme as soon as possible.

This motion has been signed by a total of 52 MPs.
