HC Deb 04 February 1965 vol 705 cc328-9W
Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Postmaster-General why be will not introduce legislation to give himself power to provide that some party political broadcasts should be transmitted by an independent television company or independent televison news studios.

Mr. Benn

Because the arrangements for party political broadcasts are a matter not for me but for agreement between the leading political parties and the broadcasting authorities.
