HC Deb 27 October 1975 vol 898 c345W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now consider extending the boundaries of the Border Television Company, and BBC Radio Carlisle, to cover the whole of Cumbria created by local government reorganisation.

Mr. Alexander W. Lyon

No. The whole of the structure of broadcasting, in television and radio, is under review by the Annan Committee of Inquiry into the Future of Broadcasting. It would not be right to change the present arrangements while that committee is sitting.
