HC Deb 25 November 1975 vol 901 c105W
Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has finished his consideration of the Report of the Siberry Working Party on a fourth television service in Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

The report is being published, in English and Welsh, today. My right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State for Wales and I are extremely grateful to Mr. Siberry for his chairmanship of the Working Party, to Sir David Davies who served on it at my invitation as a further independent member, and to the representatives of the interested organisations, for the detailed blueprint which they have produced for the way in which the Crawford Committee's recommendation for a fourth television service in Wales could be implemented. The Government will give the closest consideration to the Working Party's findings.
