HC Deb 20 May 1963 vol 678 cc9-10W
Mr. Vane

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT a list of the principal restrictions imposed by his Department to which Independent Television is subject but from which the British Broadcasting Corporation is free.

Mr. Bevins

The only restrictions I impose on the I.T.A. but not on the B.B.C. relate to one or two matters connected with advertisements. My hon. Friend may however have in mind some of the restrictions imposed by the Television Act, 1954, for example, the effect of Section 3(1)(a) and (f). The Television Bill proposes amendments to these subsections which should help the I.T.A. I have written to my hon. Friend on the matter.

Forward to
