§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to provide BBC Wales with an additional radio wavelength so that a full Welsh language radio service can be instituted in parallel with an English language service for Wales.
§ Mr. Alexander W. Lyon
In the answer which I gave to a Question by the hon. Member on 25th March.—[Vol. 871,c. 11.]—about television, I said that the Government would take decisions about broadcasting in Wales only after considering any recommendations that the Crawford Committee on Broadcasting Cover- 471W age may make, against the background of the future of broadcasting as a whole. This also applies to sound radio.
