Mr. John Hannam

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications what action he proposes to take following representations made to him to restore regional broadcasting on medium frequencies in the South-West; and if he will make a statement.

I have authorised the BBC to install low-power transmitters at Exeter, Barnstaple, Torbay, Plymouth and Redruth to broadcast on medium frequencies the programmes carried on the VHF transmissions of Radio 4, which include regional items.
