HC Deb 27 May 1960 vol 624 c85W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Postmaster-General whether the new phase of television and very high frequency transmission, the expenditure for which has been authorised by him, includes provision of those services to the communities of all the islands of the Outer Hebrides and which areas are still not included in these plans.

Mr. Bevins

The second stage of the B.B.C.'s satellite scheme includes a combined television and V.H.F. sound station for Lewis. The Corporation says that the station will be designed to serve Stornoway and as much of Lewis as possible but that it is too early to predict its coverage accurately. Other islands of the Outer Hebrides are not included.
