Oral Answers to Questions — Television – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 27th July 1949.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has approved the site at Holme Moss, chosen by the British Broadcasting Corporation for a television station to cover Manchester City and adjoining areas.
Until the station is actually working, which I expect will take some time, has the right hon. Gentleman's Department any objection to a firm like Pye Television and Radio Co., of Cambridge, setting up an installation in that area?
I should like to see that question on the Paper.
Is the Postmaster-General making plans to cover the whole of the United Kingdom and not giving preference to favourite areas?
