HL Deb 15 March 2000 vol 610 c205WA
The Earl of Courtown

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the recently-released viewing figures for the BBC Wales programme, "The Point", represent an endorsement of their devolutionary settlement for Wales. [HL1438]

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton

In general, programmes covering National Assembly business have good audiences. I assume that the low viewing figures for "The Point" on 17 February were a comment on the content and possibly the timing of that particular programme rather than on the devolution settlement in Wales.
