HC Deb 19 December 1975 vol 902 cc849-50W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what will be the likely effects on the reception of medium waves and broadcasts of BBC Radio 3 as a result of the recently announced decision of Albania to build a new high-powered transmitter.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Broadcasts from the projected Albanian transmitter would have the effect of increasing interference in the United Kingdom on 648 kHz on which Radio 3 is now broadcast, and I am now considering the implications of this, together with other issues relating to the United Kingdom's use of fre- quencies. I intend to deal with these matters in the fuller statement about the outcome of the Geneva Conference on LF/MF allocation which I hope to make to the House after the recess.

Forward to
