HC Deb 23 July 1970 vol 804 c191W
Mr. Gorst

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications whether he will give an assurance that before authorising the British Broadcasting Corporation to inaugurate any new local radio stations he will first make a statement to the House about his plans for both commercial and British Broadcasting Corporation local broadcasting.

Mr. Chataway

It would not be right for me to give such an assurance. I do not yet know how my plans will develop.
