HC Deb 23 May 1958 vol 588 c112W
Mr. Currie

asked the Postmaster-General when the necessary link will be provided to enable independent television to be extended to Northern Ireland; what representations he has had in this matter from the Independent Television Authority; and what is the cause of the delay.

Mr. Marples

I hope that the link will be ready about the end of 1959. The Independent Television Authority would have liked it earlier but its provision is a major engineering task and I cannot promise any earlier completion.
