§ 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.
