§ Mr. Cooper-Key
asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the low standard of television reception experienced in large sections of the Borough of Hastings, he has yet considered erecting a satellite transmitter; and what other suggestions he is considering for improving reception in this area.
§ Mr. K. Thompson
The B.B.C. tells me that improvement in reception in Hastings followed the increase in the power of the Crystal Palace transmitter last December. It recognises that there is still difficulty in some part of the borough. The possibility of using a satellite will be considered by the Corporation along with the claims of other areas. No other means of improving reception in Hastings is under consideration.
