HC Deb 26 January 1955 vol 536 c138
15. Captain Duncan

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether the Spanish authorities have now taken steps to abolish the interference from their station at Barcelona with the Home Service reception in the Arbroath area.

Mr. Gammans

No, Sir. We wrote again to the Spanish authorities, as promised in my reply to the hon. Member's Question on 15th December, but I understand from the B.B.C. that so far there has not been any noticeable improvement. We shall continue to do our best to get the matter put right.

Captain Duncan

Is my hon. Friend aware that not only is there no improvement but the interference is getting worse? Will he take up the matter very strongly with the Spanish authorities so as to avoid interference with the B.B.C?

Mr. Gammans

I promise that we shall do all we possibly can to put this matter right.
