§ 62. Mr. Michael Morris
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to end the monopoly 4W of the British Broadcasting Corporation and the Independent Broadcasting Authority in issuing forthcoming radio and television programme schedules only to newspapers which are sold rather than given away.
§ Mr. Brittan
No. It is the long-standing policy of successive Administrations that there should be no interference by Government in the day-to-day running of the broadcasting organisations.
