HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 c202W
Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Postmaster-General whether Phase 5 of the British Broadcasting Corporation expansion will include the introduction of a television service in Wester Lochaber.

Mr. Benn

The B.B.C. tells me that it has not yet completed its proposals for Stage 5 of its plan to improve the reception and extend the coverage of B.B.C.1. No doubt the Corporation will weigh Wester Lochaber's claims along with those of other places where service is still non-existent or poor. Meanwhile, I cannot of course anticipate the Corporation's proposals.
