§ 33. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Postmaster-General if he will introduce legislation to amend the Television Act, 1954, to ensure that programme contractors reflect fairly the balance of political and social interests in the nation.
§ Mr. K. Thompson
No. The hon. Member's criteria are more appropriately related to the programmes than to the programme contractors and on this Section 3 of the Television Act places very clear duties on the Authority.
