§ Mr. G. Roberts
asked the Postmaster-General what steps are being taken to appoint an advisory committee on Independent Television in Wales.
§ Mr. Bevins
The setting up of this advisory committee is a matter for the I.T.A., whose attention has been drawn to paragraph 18 of the White Paper on Broadcasting (Cmnd. 1770). This endorses the Pilkington Committee recommendation that such a committee should be set up.
The Authority inform me that with the appointment of a second programme company for Wales, and the forthcoming extension of their service to West and North Wales the question of appointing an advisory committee is now under consideration.
