HC Deb 20 March 1980 vol 981 c297W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Lord Privy Seal what steps are being taken to boost the transmitted power of the British Broadcasting Corporation's overseas broadcasts to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Mr. Blaker

A programme of capital expenditure to improve the audibility of the BBC external services is already under way. The BBC forecasts that the transmitted power of its overseas broadcasts to Eastern Europe will be substantially improved by 1983.
