HC Deb 28 July 1964 vol 699 c234W
38. Mr. George Craddock

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the very poor reception on B.B.C. 1 Television in Yorkshire; and if he will take steps to remedy the position.

Mr. Mawby

As I explained in my Answer to the hon. Member for Birmingham, Perry Barr (Mr. Charles A. Howell) on 23rd June, the problem of interference to B.B.C. television reception from continental stations during the summer is a general one. Reception will however be improved for many viewers by the additional stations the B.B.C. are building. They are building a Band III station at Belmont which should provide improved reception in parts of the East Riding; and they hope to open a low-power station next Spring to serve the ScarboroughFiley area.
