BRACERS Record Detail
To access the original letter, email the Ready Division.
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.
