§ 9. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General when he expects that television will be visible in the city of Aberdeen.
§ The Assistant Postmaster-General (Mr. David Gammans)
As I informed the hon. and learned Member in my reply on 27th January, the B.B.C. expects to have working by the end of 1954 a temporary low-power station at Redmoss which will serve Aberdeen and a limited area around. It is too soon to give an actual date.
§ Mr. Hughes
Does the hon. Gentleman realise that this is not good enough and that he is in honour bound to keep his long-standing and many promises to provide Aberdeen with television at an early date?
§ Mr. Gammans
I think that what I have told the hon. and learned Gentleman today is not inconsistent with what I told him before. In any case, the work is being done by the B.B.C.
