§ 1. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he is yet in a position to announce the date when a television service will be available for Aberdeen and the North-East of Scotland.
§ The Assistant Postmaster-General (Mr. David Gammans)
No, Sir, not yet.
§ Mr. Hughes
Will the hon. Gentleman explain three esoteric mysteries about this television plan? First, will it take precedence over commercial television? Second, is it not strange that he can fix the place and mode in which but not the 1266 time when it will be available? Third, what areas in the North of Scotland will it cover?
§ Mr. Gammans
The last part of the supplementary question I answered last week. With regard to the selection of the site, that is a matter for the B.B.C. As to the time when it will be ready, if the hon. and learned Gentleman will put down a Question in about six months' time, I shall probably be able to give him the information.
