§ Mr. Kershaw
asked the Postmaster-General whether the British Broadcasting Corporation Channel One transmitter in the Cheltenham-Gloucester area is working satisfactorily; what further steps the British Broadcasting Corporation is taking to ensure better reception of television in the Stroud area; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Joseph Slater
The B.B.C. tells me that its Cheltenham-Gloucester relay station located at Churchdown Hill is working satisfactorily; but points out that the coverage of this station was not expected to include the Stroud area. Reception in Stroud of their transmissions on Channel 5 from Wenvoe is, the Corporation add, generally satisfactory, provided suitable aerials are properly installed.
