HC Deb 06 July 1955 vol 543 c101W
84. Mr. Whitelaw

asked the Postmaster-General what progress he has made with his plans to provide better wireless and television reception in Cumberland.

Dr. Hill

The B.B.C. have completed the extensive tests necessary to select a site for the television station near Carlisle. They hope to open the station at the end of 1956, and afterwards they propose to establish a V.H.F. sound broadcasting station on the same site.
