HC Deb 02 December 1994 vol 250 c922W
Mr. Sweeney

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has for extending cable network franchising in Wales.

Mr. Redwood

Today, the Independent Television Commission is preparing to advertise new franchises for much of south Wales early next year. Franchises for north Wales will follow.

The ITC will consider further franchises as soon as it receives expressions of interest.

I want the whole of Wales to benefit from the broad band communication revolution and look forward to expressions of interest from companies.
