§ 25. Mr. DAY
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has received any Report from the British Broadcasting Corporation with reference to any increase in the building of high-power stations for the purpose of providing alternative programmes in the northern and western section of Great Britain; and can he state whether the Government have been consulted and given any decision in the matter?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I understand that the British Broadcasting Corporation are at present engaged in searching for suitable sites for these stations, but that they are not yet in a position to submit definite proposals for my approval.
