HC Deb 31 January 1985 vol 72 cc237-8W
21. Mr. Waller

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will take steps to incorporate the existing links between local authorities and their local radio stations into the wartime broadcasting service.

Mr. Giles Shaw

The purpose of the wartime broadcasting service is to ensure the survival of a basic national and regional sound broadcasting service if normal systems fail after a nuclear attack. The service will be extended to include local radio stations as appropriate and as resources permit.
