Several members of the French parliament are greatly perturbed over the proposal that in future all the speeches be broadoast so that every voter with 'a wireless receiving set will be able to listen to what his rep resentatives has to say and check the manner in which he is keeping his election pledges! Many deputies are much op posed to the proposal. They describe it as dangerous and likely to give rise to misunderstanding. Lafagette, the originator of the idea, one of the youngest members of the 'chamber of deputies? considers the broadcasting of parliamentary debates an up-to-date and democratic reform that would per mit the electors' to keep In closer touch with the government machine. Daniel Vincent, minister of commerce, whose task it would he to install the broadcasting machinery, thinks the idea excellent. It would shorten the finppf hps. ne declared.
