HC Deb 16 March 1965 vol 708 cc230-1W
63. Mr. Hazell

asked the Postmaster-General if he will take steps to improve local broadcasting services in Norfolk.

Mr. Benn

Responsibility for the quality of broadcast transmissions rests primarily on the B.B.C. and I.T.A. They tell me that reception of their television and V.H.F. sound services is generally good in Norfolk. In fringe areas where reception may be a little difficult the use of good outside receiving aerials should improve matters.

Reception of the Light Programme on long wave and the Home Service and Third Programme on medium wave is also generally satisfactory over most of Norfolk, but after dark the Home Service in North-East Norfolk is liable to interference.

If my hon. Friend has any particular case in mind and will write to me about it I will gladly have it investigated.
