HC Deb 26 July 1950 vol 478 c84W
156. Mr. Marlowe

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the poor reception of television on the South Coast; what are the causes of interference; and what steps he proposes to take to remedy the situation.

Mr. Ness Edwards

Yes; interference may be caused by motor cars and electrical apparatus, but the main cause of poor reception is distance from the television transmitter at Alexandra Palace. It is still too soon to say what remedial measures may be found to be practicable.
