§ 39. Mr. Gourlay
asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications if he is aware of the inferior quality of sound and vision programmes provided by the British Broadcasting Corporation in some areas in Fife; and, in view of the standard licence fee in the United Kingdom, if he will take steps to standardise quality more closely.
§ Mr. Chataway
No. The B.B.C., which is primarily concerned with the quality of its sound and vision services, tells me that Fife is well served generally, and that the U.H.F. transmissions of B.B.C.I from Craigkelly are expected to start next Saturday.
