§ Mr. Grylls
asked the Secretary of State for Industry when he expects to issue a cellular radio licence to Racal; and how he intends to monitor the progress made to ensure that all the undertakings given by that group in its amended application are kept.
§ Mr. Butcher
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Industry expects to be in a position to issue a298W licence to the Racal Millicom consortium to run a national cellular radiotelephone service within the next few weeks. I intend that the Office of Telecommunications proposed under the Telecommunications Bill currently before the House will monitor the licence.
