HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 cc201-2W
Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will give an assurance that the booster television station at Kingussie, due for completion by the British Broadcasting Corporation in March 1966, will be completed on time.

Mr. Benn

The construction timetable for the B.B.C.'s stations is the Corporation's responsibility. They tell me, however, that the delay is due to staff shortages, and to the fact that technical prob- lems posed by the need to operate a large number of stations on a limited number of frequency channels are proving to be greater than expected.
