HC Deb 22 March 1982 vol 20 c239W
13. Sir David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what arrangements he is making to ensure that British industry responds to the Government's intention to proceed with direct broadcasting by satellite.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

We have already encouraged a keen and expert consortium to provide the satellite system. We have also had useful preparatory discussions with industry on the supply and installation of direct broadcasting by satellite dishes and receivers.
