HC Deb 23 July 1958 vol 592 c395
9. Mr. Watkins

asked the Postmaster-General when he estimates that television coverage will be available for central Wales.

Mr. Marples

So far as the B.B.C. is concerned, the position is still as described in the reply by my hon. Friend on 2nd April to a Question by the hon. Member for Barry (Mr. Gower). The I.T.A. cannot yet make any plans for central Wales in view of its existing commitments.

Mr. Watkins

Can the right hon. Gentleman say what has been the result of the experimental satellite station at Folkestone? If it is found to be successful, will he give priority for a similar station in Llandrindod Wells?

Mr. Marples

The results at Folkestone are not yet known, but as soon as they are, I will consider the point raised by the hon. Gentleman.
