§ 105. Captain Orr
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he will now give the reasons in detail for the failure to provide service from a permanent television transmitter in Northern Ireland during 1954.243W
§ 106. Mr. Harden
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General to what extent the delay in setting up the permanent television transmitter for Northern Ireland is due to failure by the manufacturers to deliver the equipment on schedule.
§ 107. Mr. McKibbin
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General to what extent the fact that the permanent television transmitter for Northern Ireland cannot now commence service before 1955 is due to delay in constructing the road at Divis.
§ Mr. Gammans
As I informed my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Down, South (Captain Orr) on 2nd December, the B.B.C. has a big programme of work during the next two years and the Government are satisfied that it is being pressed on at all points as quickly as possible. There is no question of delay at Belfast; preliminary engineering work for this station is proceeding so that, in common with the other six stations authorised by the Government in July last, it will be in service on a permanent basis before the end of 1955.
