HC Deb 15 February 1989 vol 147 c247W
67. Mr. Nicholas Bennett

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what steps his Department has taken to relieve congestion in the cellular radio network.

Mr. Atkins

As I announced on 26 January we are extending the availability to the cellular radio operators of 400 radio channels, until now reserved for MOD use except in the area of central London, out to the area embraced by the M25 and five miles beyond. The use of these channels will be on a pre-emptible basis.
