§ 29. Mr. Day
asked the Postmaster-General when it is proposed to open the new broadcasting stations at Stagshaw, Newcastle-on-Tyne; and whether he has received any information as to when the new broadcasting stations at South Devon 1634 and in the neighbourhood of the Bristol Channel will be commenced?
§ Sir W. Womersley
I am informed by the British Broadcasting Corporation that the new station at Stagshaw, near Newcastle-on-Tyne, will be opened in the autumn. Negotiations for the purchase of a site in South Devon are approaching completion. Tests of several possible sites for the proposed relay station in the neighbourhood of the Bristol Channel are proceeding.
