HC Deb 19 March 1958 vol 584 c133W
18. Mr. Willey

asked the Postmaster-General the number of receiving sets capable of receiving very-high-frequency and medium-wave broadcast programmes, respectively, which are located in North-Eastern England.

Mr. K. Thompson

It is not possible to give accurate figures for any part of the country. Taking the whole of the United Kingdom I understand that there are some 17 million medium-wave receivers and an additional 1½ million receivers capable of receiving V.H.F.
