HC Deb 18 December 1957 vol 580 c399
20. Mr. Hayman

asked the Postmaster-General what progress is being made in the development of a low-power television transmitter to serve areas now getting bad reception.

Mr. Marples

The British Broadcasting Corporation hope that the prototype of a low-power unattended transmitter will be ready for field trials early in the New Year. Amongst other things, these trials will show the kind of areas for which this equipment is likely to be suitable.

Mr. Hayman

Is the Minister aware that that reply will give very great satisfaction in West Cornwall in particular, in some parts of which reception is now very bad?
