HC Deb 15 November 1983 vol 48 c376W
Ms. Harman

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list all the advisory committees whose members are appointed by him; and, in respect of each such committee, how many of the members are women and how many are men.

Mr. Brittan

The information is as follows:

company concerned has announced its intention of withdrawing its service to provide network broadcasts to householders.

Mr. Hurd

The policy is set out in paragraph 207 of the White Paper on "The Development of Cable Systems and Services"—Cmnd. 8866. My right hon. and learned Friend is prepared to license existing cable operators to offer additional services and, where necessary, to do so by removing BBC and IBA channels from their systems so long as they provide satisfactory alternative means of reception at no extra cost to the viewer.
