§ Mr. Ness Edwards
asked the Postmaster-General if, in view of the unexpectedly large profits made by the current holder of commercial television contracts, he will use his power under Section 13 of the Television Act, 1964, to provide for an increase in the rates of additional payments for embodiment in the new contracts now being negotiated.
§ Mr. Edward Short
The scale of the additional payments required from independent television programme contractors under Section 13 of the Television Act, 1964, is kept under review. I cannot yet say whether any change should be proposed.
