asked the Postmaster-General what studies he is making for the future use of communication satellites for television transmission.

The Early Bird satellite is now available for transatlantic television relays. The Interim Communications Satellite Committee, of which the United Kingdom is a member, is studying possible ways of meeting future television relay requirements.
