HC Deb 02 March 1989 vol 148 c273W
Mrs. Margaret Ewing

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list in theOfficial Report the names of those organisations who submitted a response to the White Paper, "Broadcasting in the '90s," Cm. 517; and which of those organisations favoured the auctioning of franchises.

Mr. Renton

We have so far received over 2,200 responses to the White Paper, a number of which propose some form of competitive tender procedure for licence allocation. Some expected responses are still outstanding, but we have it in mind in due course to place in the Library a list of the main organisations who have submitted comments.
