§ 46. Mr. Woodburn
asked the Lord President of the Council what consideration is being given to proposals for televising the Opening of Parliament and speeches in the House of Commons on that day; and what arrangements are being made to do so in colour.
§ Mr. Crossman
It is not considered that the introduction of colour television justifies departing from the convention that the Opening is televised only at the beginning of the first session of a new Parliament.
§ Mr. Woodburn
As the other place was televised so that people have an idea of what it looks like inside, would it not be desirable for this part of the building to be televised so that people have an idea of the ceremonies which take place in this House?
