HC Deb 22 February 1965 vol 707 c44W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Postmaster-General what plans he has for implementing the recommendation of the Pilkington Committee that Wales should have its own British Broadcasting Corporation television programme, available to the whole Principality.

Mr. Benn

The B.B.C. already provides a separate programme for much of the Principality. As my hon. Friend told the hon. Member for Barry on 9th February, the B.B.C. expects to open stations at Carmarthen in March, Machynlleth in May, and at Moel-y-Parc in the summer of this year; and at Cardigan, Dolgellau, Llangollen and Llanidloes during 1966; and is considering which other areas to include in a further stage of its plan to improve and extend its service.

Forward to
