HC Deb 03 December 1958 vol 596 cc143-4W
100. Sir A. Spearman

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will arrange to install a satellite television transmitter in the Scarborough area, as reception in parts of the town is so poor.

Mr. K. Thompson

The British Board-casting Corporation has plans, subject to technical examination, for further improvements and extensions of its television coverage over a period of years, by means of a number of low-power satellite stations. The Corporation has now submitted their plans to my right hon. Friend. I cannot say at this stage what it may be possible to do for particular areas. The Independent Television Authority has not yet made any plans for the Scarborough area.
