§ Mrs. Ann Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) how much his Department pays the Post Office for the advice given on television and radio reception; and how many applications for help are made under the present scheme;
(2) what steps he has taken to ensure that publicity is given to the advice of television and radio reception which his Department provides through the Post Office.
§ Mr. Alexander W. Lyon
Advice given by the Post Office is only concerned with interference to reception caused by other radio services or by electrical equipment. In the financial year 1974–75, the Post Office was paid £1,711,716 for this work in respect of 51,368 complaints. No special steps have been thought necessary to give publicity to this service, which is available on application at local post offices.
