§ Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) if he intends to introduce legislation on citizens band radio during this Session of Parliament;
(2) how many letters he has now received advocating a different radio frequency for citizens band radio from that suggested in his Green Paper.
§ Mr. Raison
Primary legislation would not be required to introduce open channel radio. Since the publication of the discussion document we have received representations from about 30,000 individuals or organisations—18,000 of these being represented by signatures on a single petition. The majority of these favoured a 27 MHz service.
