HC Deb 28 January 1988 vol 126 cc306-7W
Mr. Hannam

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which frequencies he has in mind to withdraw from the BBC to enable national commercial radio stations to broadcast.

Mr. Hurd

I have it in mind, after the enactment of the legislative proposals outlined in my reply to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Fylde (Mr. Jack) on 19 January at columns647–649, to reassign the medium frequencies now used by BBC Radio 1 and Radio 3. A VHF network will also be available for use by a national commercial station.
