HC Deb 02 March 1960 vol 618 c1208
29. Mr. Mayhew

asked the Postmaster-General the terms of reference and membership of the proposed commission of inquiry into the future of broadcasting.

Mr. Bevins

If and when the Government decide upon such a course, the House would, of course, be informed. No such decision has been made.

Mr. Mayhew

But will not the Minister agree that it is essential to have a committee of inquiry before the new licences for television broadcasting are issued?

Mr. Bevins

Yes, Sir, that is one of possibilities which are being looked at.
