§ Mr. Langford-Holt
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General how many amateur broadcasting licences have been issued in the United Kingdom at the latest convenient date; and what restrictions, as to broadcast matter, are placed on these broadcasters.
§ Mr. Gammans
There were 7,535 licensed radio amateurs in the United Kingdom on 22nd February. Amateur licences permit the use of a station only for the purpose of sending to, and receiving from, other amateur stations messages of a personal nature. The broadcasting of messages to amateur stations in general is prohibited.
