§ Sir Patrick Wall
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he expects European citizens band frequencies to be adopted by the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Butcher
Further to my answer of 7 May 1985 at column317–18, the Government are still aiming towards 1987 as a target date for the adoption of the additional conference of European posts and telecommunications (CEPT) citizens band radio frequencies. We need to finalise some remaining consultations with existing users of affected frequencies and once this is done I will make a fuller statement.
