HC Deb 09 May 1961 vol 640 c38W
Mr. MacArthur

asked the Postmaster-General if he will exercise his powers under Section 15 (5) of the Television Act, 1954, and ask the Independent Television Authority to send him details of the annual amounts received by them from each programme company since 1955; and if he will publish this information in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Bevins

No. The contracts between the Independent Television Authority and the programme are a matter for the Authority and I see no grounds for asking the Authority for details of their rental charges.
