HC Deb 24 July 1956 vol 557 c25W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, in the interests of the farming community, he will represent to the British Broadcasting Corporation that the weather news on television should be given at about 10 p.m., which is a more convenient time for farmers than 7 p.m., which is too early and 11 p.m. which is too late for them.

Mr. Amory

I understand the B.B.C. has already examined this suggestion sympathetically but feels unable to adopt it owing to the real difficulties it would involve in re-arranging evening programmes.
