HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 c411W
Mr. Robert Cooke

asked the Postmaster-General why he has increased the membership of the Independent Television Authority.

Mr. Bevins

I have decided to increase the number of members of the I.T.A., including the Chairman and Deputy Chairman, from 10 to 13 to help the Authority carry out its increased duties and responsibilities under the Television Act, 1963, which comes fully into effect today, 30th July, 1964.
