asked the Postmaster-General what steps are being taken to provide B.B.C. 2 programmes and colour television to those parts of Wharfedale between Harewood and Ilkley; and if he will now arrange for a reduction in the television licence fees to all receivers who are unable to obtain B.B.C. 2 programmes.
The B.B.C. tells me that it hopes to open the Bilsdale U.H.F. station, radiating B.B.C. 2 with its colour content, and which will serve the Harewood area, during the winter of 1968–69. Towards the end of 1969, a satellite station will be opened to relay the service to Wharfedale as far as Ilkley.
The Answer to the second part of the Question is: "No, Sir ".
