HL Deb 21 June 1982 vol 431 cc905-6WA
Lord Sefton of Garston

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, given the wide public interest in news bulletins, they will request the BBC to follow the good example of ITN in not changing their transmission times so frequently.

Lord Elton

No; the timing of news bulletins, like other programming matters, is the responsibility of the broadcasting authorities, who no doubt take due account of comments such as the noble Lord's.
