HC Deb 22 June 1949 vol 466 c24W
73. Mr. C. S. Taylor

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will make a statement about the bad radio reception of the British Broadcasting Corporation stations in the Eastbourne area; and what steps have been taken to improve this reception.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

The B.B.C. is aware that the reception in Eastbourne of some of its programmes is not always reliable. The Corporation is examining the possibility of providing additional relay stations but there are serious technical difficulties and no decision has yet been reached.
