HC Deb 02 March 1960 vol 618 cc1208-9
31. Mr. Hayman

asked the Postmaster-General when the British Broadcasting Corporation expects to be able to provide the new television and very high frequency transmitter for west Cornwall.

Mr. Bevins

The B.B.C. has chosen a site and hopes to start work shortly. It estimates that it will then take about eighteen months to complete the station.

Mr. Hayman

While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I inquire whether he will ask the B.B.C. to do all it can to expedite the provision of this transmitter, because reception in places in west Cornwall is very bad.

Mr. Bevins

Yes, Sir.
