HC Deb 10 May 1950 vol 475 cc54-5W
32. Mr. Aitken

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that many complaints have been made in the parish of Moulton, Suffolk, about interference in local wireless and television reception; that, although the cause was traced some months ago by the local electricity company and the General Post Office as being due to a fault in the electricity mains between Gazeley and Kentford, nothing has as yet been done; and if he will make representations to the British Electricity Authority to remedy this fault.

Mr. Ness Edwards

I am aware of four outstanding complaints in which interference with wireless reception at Moulton, Suffolk, is thought to emanate from the electricity supply lines. I understand from the British Electricity Authority that the area Board's plant which was suspected of causing interference was overhauled on the 22nd March and that investigations are still in progress.
