HC Deb 26 March 1952 vol 498 c397
35. Mr. Frederic Harris

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General when a decision will be made that television broadcasting be transferred from Alexandra Palace to Crystal Palace; and when the date of such transfer may be.

Mr. Gammans

The B.B.C. is carrying out tests to try and find a suitable site for a new television transmitting station if they have to move from Alexandra Palace when the current lease expires in 1956. Several alternatives are being examined and it is too early to say when a decision will be made.

Mr. Harris

Does that mean that when the move does take place, studios will be entirely rebuilt on this new site?

Mr. Gammans

It is far too early to give an answer to a point like that.
