HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 c1450
56. Mr. Llewellyn

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will make a statement concerning the progress made in the erection of the television station a Wenvoe; what shortage of materials or labour has been encountered; and whether it is anticipated that shortages will adversely affect existing plans.

Mr. Ness Edwards

The B.B.C. informs me that progress with the television station at Wenvoe is so far proceeding according to schedule; no shortages of consequence either of material or labour have been encountered as yet, but I cannot forecast the future.

Mr. Llewellyn

Can the right hon. Gentleman say for what date the completion of this station is planned, unless unfortunate shortages intervene in the meantime?

Mr. Ness Edwards

I think we gave a rough date of mid-1952. I do not think it will be any later on present performance, but one cannot tell the future position of labour and materials.
