HC Deb 02 May 1968 vol 763 c231W
37. Mr. Grimond

asked the Postmaster General what steps are being taken to improve the present reception apart from intentions to develop other television networks in Shetland.

Mr. Joseph Slater

The improvement of television reception is the responsibility of the B.B.C. They tell me that the service in the Shetlands has been affected by occasional failures in the electric power supply to the transmitters; and that they are considering what might be done to remedy this. I am told that, otherwise, reception is generally satisfactory.
