HC Deb 13 March 1962 vol 655 c1115
42. Mr. H. Clark

asked the Postmaster-General what plans he has for improved television reception along the north Antrim coast, and particularly at Ballycastle.

Miss Pike

Both the B.B.C. and the I.T.A. are well aware of the poor reception conditions in Ballycastle and other places on the North Antrim coast, and have the area in mind in their planning of future stations.

Mr. Clark

Will my hon. Friend please encourage the B.B.C. to give the highest priority to its service in this area? The North Antrim coast is a well-known resort and visitors are being driven away by the impossibly bad television reception there.

Miss Pike

I am sure that the B.B.C. will take note of what my hon. Friend has said.
