HC Deb 05 August 1975 vol 897 c139W
Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many local authorities operate their own education television service; and what is his policy towards this form of expenditure.

Mr. Mulley

The Department does not receive returns about such activities, but I understand that three local authorities in England provide a major central television service for educational establishments within their areas. It is for the authorities themselves to judge the value of these services.
