HC Deb 20 May 1953 vol 515 cc2051-2
27. Miss Ward

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he will make a statement on the present priority as regards extension of capital investment available for broadcasting and television on the North-East Coast.

Mr. Gammans

As the House is aware, the Government have television development under review and a statement will be made shortly.

Miss Ward

Would I be right in assuming from that answer that the North-East Coast would have priority even over sponsored television?

Mr. Gammans

I think the hon. Lady had better await the statement. She has already got television on the North-East Coast.
