HC Deb 13 July 1955 vol 543 c180W
79. Mr. Kenyon

asked the Postmaster-General the reasons for the bad wireless reception in the Chorley area; and what steps are being taken to remedy the faults.

Dr. Hill

There is considerable interference on the North Regional Home Service (434 metres) after dark from a station in Spain. We have taken up the question with the Spanish authorities. The B.B.C. are going ahead with their plans for a V.H.F. station at Holme Moss, which it is hoped will be ready by the end of 1956. This new station will give a service free of interference from foreign stations, and will cover the Chorley area.
