HC Deb 16 July 1958 vol 591 c91W
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.
