HC Deb 09 March 1964 vol 691 c17W
Mr. G. Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress he has made in investigating the possibility of joint use of wireless masts by the police and others, with special reference to the situation at Mynydd Rhiw, Caernarvonshire; and what conclusions he has reached.

Mr. Woodhouse

It is the policy of Her Majesty's Government that wireless sites and masts should be shared wherever possible, within the limitations imposed by technical considerations and, in some cases, security. In the case of the Mynydd Rhiw wireless station, my Department is seeking to establish whether there would be any loss of efficiency if the joint police and fire service wireless scheme in Gwynedd were transferred from this site to the Independent Television Authority mast at Arfon. The problems of co-siting are complex and each site has to be considered on its merits.
