HC Deb 22 February 1954 vol 524 c10W
Mr. Grimond

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he will inquire into the causes of bad reception in Orkney and Shetland; and protest to foreign governments whose stations cause interference on British wavelengths.

Mr. Gammons

I understand from the B.B.C. that reception of the Scottish Home Service, and of the Light programme on the long wave, should be reasonably satisfactory in the daytime provided efficient receivers and outdoor aerials are used. The hon. Member has probably in mind the liability of the Home Service to fading and interference after dark. We are discussing the problem of interference with the foreign authorities concerned.
