HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 c118W
86. Mr. Fortescue

asked the Postmaster General whether he will give an assurance that the new British Broadcasting Corporation service of popular music on 247 metres proposed in the recent White Paper will be able to be received clearly in Liverpool; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Edward Short

The coverage attained by B.B.C. services is primarily a matter for the Corporation who tell me that reception in Liverpool of the popular music programme on 247 metres is expected to be satisfactory in daylight hours. After dark, there is likely to be interference from continental stations.
