HC Deb 13 March 1958 vol 584 c74W
74. Mr. J. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he proposes to take to deal with the use of television in general elections and in by-elections so that a clear code is established and the spirit and intentions of the Representation of the People Act are maintained.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I understand that the television authorities have this matter under consideration, and they will no doubt in due course consult the main political parties according to custom.
