The BBC mustend its Greek and Turkish lan- « guage services because of drastic cuts in public spending announced by Britain’s Conservative* | government last night. The cuts in the BBC budgetto the tune of £2,700,000 mean that the Corporation will discontinue seven of ‘its 38 foreign lan- guage programmes starting from April 1980. Other services to be affected include the ones in French, Italian, Maltese, Burmese and Spanish for Europe. The BBC issued a statement deploring the Government's de- cision “at a time when competitors in the Communist world were increasing their ser- _ vices”. Opposition leader ' James Callaghan de- scribed the move as being “totally against national interests”. A full-scale debate will be held in the House of Commons to- day. i
