HC Deb 24 February 1960 vol 618 cc370-1
45. Mr. C. Hughes

asked the Postmaster-General when a satellite television station will be provided for North Wales.

Mr. Bevins

The B.B.C. tells me that it hopes to provide a satellite television station in North Wales in the second stage of its satellite programme. I understand that the Corporation is now preparing its plans for this stage. The I.T.A.'s plans for further extension in Wales are not yet finalised.

Mr. Hughes

In view of the length of time which it appears to take to build these satellite stations, will the right hon. Gentleman give an assurance that when an application is made to him for approval of the sites, he will give his consent as expeditiously as possible, so as to cut down all unnecessary delay?

Mr. Bevins

Directly the B.B.C. puts its proposals to me, I shall see that there is the least possible delay.

Forward to
