HC Deb 16 March 1955 vol 538 c119W
15. Captain Orr

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he will make a statement on the coverage it is hoped to obtain for the new commercial television stations which are to operate from London, Birmingham, and Manchester.

Mr. Gammans

Coverage is a matter for the I.T.A., and their estimate for the Croydon station has recently been published in the Press. The Authority have informed me that they will make a similar statement about the range of the other two stations as soon as they can. I am informed that the effective radiated power from the aerial at Croydon will be 60kW.
