§ Mr. Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is satisfied with the state of television reception in the area of Pentredwr, Llangollen, Clwyd; and, if not, what steps he proposes to take, in conjunction with or by way of advice to, the British Broadcasting Corporation to improve it.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The provision of UHF 625-line television services is primarily the responsibility of the broadcasting authorities. The BBC tells us that because of the small and scattered population it has no plans in the foreseeable future for supplementing the available television coverage in the Pentredwr area. It would, however, be prepared to send representatives to the area to give technical advice on possible alternative means of making a UHF television service available to the community.
