§ Mr. Grylls
asked the Prime Minister if she is satisfied with the co-ordination between the Home Office, the Department of Industry and the Department of Transport on the authorisation of the Carfax radio information service and the allocation of radio frequencies; and if she will make a statement.
§ The Prime Minister
Yes, I am so satisfied. Discussions between the Government and the BBC on the question of a permanent frequency for a Carfax service are continuing. There are particular difficulties in finding a frequency which would be both suitable for the proposed service and available under the international radio regulations on a permanent basis.
