HC Deb 25 March 1964 vol 692 c110W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what consideration is being given by his Department to the more extensive use of the Gaelic language in plans to make greater use of local educational broadcasting.

Mr. Noble

The Schools Broadcasting Council for Scotland, on which my Department is represented, has discussed with the education authorities of Argyll, Inverness and Ross and Cromarty the possibilities of local education broadcasts in gaelic on V.H.F. The matter will be further considered next year, when V.H.F. coverage of the area is expected to be completed.
