: Hi,

: Could anyone help me with the follwing sentence? I don't quite understand.

: Imaprtiality is preserved on the part of the persons providing the programmes as respects matters of political or industrial controversy or relating to current public policy; and subject as hereinafter provided in this subsection, that no matter designed to serve the interests of any political party is included in the programmes.

: Thanks.

: Mei

What a horrible sentence. Sounds like legalese.

People providing the programmes (programs - U.S.) must be impartial regarding political or industrial controversy and current public policy. No subject matter serving the interests of any political party will (shall?) be included in the programmes.
