HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc410-1W
Mr. Hirst

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the poor television reception in many parts of Shipley, Bingley, and Baildon; and what proposals he has to overcome it.

Mr. Mawby

As I explained to the hon. Member for Bradford, South (Mr. George Craddock) on 28th July, the problem of interference to B.B.C. television reception from continental stations during the summer is a general one to which there is no short-term answer. Reception of I.T.A. television in my hon. Friend's constituency will improve when the I.T.A. brings its higher mast into service at Emley Moor next year.
