HC Deb 30 June 1964 vol 697 cc183-4W
33. Mr. P. Williams

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that in certain parts in the west of County Durham it is impossible to receive British Broadcasting Corporation Television satisfactorily, due to continental interference, particularly during the summer months; and what action he is taking to remedy this.

Mr. Maurice Macmillan

These are the figures requested:

Mr. Bevins

Yes. I have authorised the B.B.C. to build a satellite television station to serve as much of Weardale as possible. The Corporation hopes to have this station in service by next summer.
