§ 62. Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications if he will make a further statement on the future of the British Broadcasting Corporation's local radio stations; and what reply he has made to requests that they should be handed over to commercial interests.
§ Mr. Chataway
I do not yet have anything to add to my announcement of 6th August, 1970, a copy of which is in the Library. I have asked inquirers about the future of local radio to await the publication of the Government's proposals.
