HC Deb 16 March 1965 vol 708 c230W
57. Mr. Dance

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will introduce legislation to create a broadcasting and television authority which would have the same control over the British Broadcasting Corporation as the Independent Television Authority has over the independent companies.

Mr. Benn

The Chairman and Governors are themselves appointed as a public corporation to exercise just such authority in respect of the programmes broadcast by the B.B.C.
