§ Mr. Roy Hughes
asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications if he will now approve local radio on medium-wave programmes.
§ Mr. Stonehouse
Yes. I am authorising the B.B.C. to transmit local radio programmes on medium frequencies as well as on V.H.F. The medium frequency transmissions will make the programmes available at least during daylight hours to many listeners who have no V.H.F. receivers.
