§ Mr. Fowler
asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications whether he will report on progress in the implementation of the Sound Broadcasting Act.
§ Sir J. Eden
As I announced on 19th June in a written answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Aldershot (Mr. Critchley) the tentative selection of the first 26 localities for radio stations has 341W now been made, and the technical planning of the frequencies, locations and specifications of the stations is going on. My hon. Friend will also know from Press notices that the ITA is giving preliminary thought to the policy planning of the new service.—[Vol. 839, c. 39.]
