Bandaranaike, responding to BR's letter of 21 August 1964 (see record 65749), comments that "the press in Ceylon enjoys almost a monopoly position", and are all controlled "by a very few families". Accordingly, there is no balanced perspective in reporting and the Ceylon government has decided to establish a Press Council. Bandaranaike also mentions that BR's request to become a sponsor of the BRPF has been given "my earnest consideration".

The date is indicated as both the 18th and 24th of November on the letter.
