HC Deb 02 December 1953 vol 521 cc137-8W
85. Brigadier Clarke

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General the estimated cost to public and private licence holders of the change in frequency caused by the proposed use of certain wavelengths for television and radio, which were formerly available to them.

Mr. Gammans

I regret that it is not possible to make any reliable estimate of the cost of changes in frequency which may be needed to make Band III available for television.

95. Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what licences he has granted for transmission on Band IV; and whether these are for private services or public broadcasting.

Mr. Gammans

No licences have been issued for public broadcasting services, but the B.B.C. and a number of radio firms have been licensed to carry out experimental transmissions in the band.
