HC Deb 26 March 1952 vol 498 cc398-9
40. Mr. Tudor Watkins

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what radius will the Wenvoe low-power television transmitter cover.

Mr. Gammans

The B.B.C. expects that the low-powered television transmitter at Wenvoe will provide a satisfactory service to Glamorgan, Monmouth, part of Brecknock, the greater part of Somerset and parts of the adjoining counties. But reception will be more liable to interference, particularly in the fringe areas, than it will when the high-powered transmitter comes into service.

41. Mr. Watkins

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what studio facilities there will be for Wales when the Wenvoe television transmitter will be in full service.

Mr. Gammans

Television studios are not being provided outside London at present, but outside broadcasts from Wales will be included in the television programmes.

Mr. G. R. Howard

May I ask my hon. Friend whether he considers that this radius will include the county of Cornwall?

Mr. Gammans

That is another question
