HC Deb 08 February 1973 vol 850 cc186-7W
Mr. Milne

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications if he will arrange for the members of the Independent Broadcasting Authority to be drawn from a wider section of the community than at present; and if he will seek powers to provide that if political matters have to be dealt with by the IBA, a special panel of the IBA answerable to Parliament should be set up.

Sir J. Eden

In making appointments, I do my best to maintain a balance of views and experience on the authority, which is itself answerable to Parliament.
