HC Deb 10 November 1954 vol 532 cc140-1W
Mr. Vane

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what information he has about a station in the Eastern Zone of Germany which is broadcasting in such a way as to interfere seriously with radio reception in North-Western England; and what representations have been made to the Governments concerned to abate such interference.

Mr. Gammans

I know there is this interference with reception of the Northern Home Service programme in parts of North-West England, and we are doing everything possible to stop or reduce it. It comes from Hildburghausen, which is working on a frequency not allotted to it under the Copenhagen Plan. This matter, as well as the interference with the Welsh Home Service, to which the hon. Member for Anglesey (Mr. C. Hughes) referred in his Question on 20th October, is now in the hands of our High Commissioner at Bonn. I understand that reception of the Light Programme in the area is satisfactory.
