§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications what representations he has received in the last 12 months concerning the extension of television services in Wales; and what reply he has given.
§ Mr. Chataway
Hon. Members have asked me 12 Parliamentary Questions; I have received 15 letters from hon. Members and 45 letters from other people. I have replied that the extension of services whether to improve reception in particular places or in Wales as a whole, depends, as in the rest of the United Kingdom, on the construction of new UHF transmitting stations. This is going on as fast as is allowed by the resources of the B.B.C. and I.T.A., but since the whole programme includes several hundred stations it will take a number of years to complete.
