HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 cc495-6W
Mr. Whitehead

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications if he will now announce details of further contracts awarded by the Ministry for local experimental cable television up to 1976.

Sir J. Eden

I have now agreed in principle to licence experiments by British Relay Limited in Sheffield, Radio Rentals Limited jointly with EMI Limited in Swindon, Redifffusion Limited in Bristol, and Wellingborough Traders Television Relay Limited in Wellingborough. The conditions under which I will grant licences will be the same as those under which I have licensed Greenwich Cablevision Limited. These four complete the selection of experiments to run until July, 1976.
