§ Mr. Fisher
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what estimates he has of radio's projected share of national advertising revenue over the next five years;
(2) if he will publish any estimates he has of radio's projected share of national advertising revenue over 'the next five years.
§ Mr. Renton
Our plans for independent radio will leave it well placed to increase its share—currently just over 2 per cent.—of total national advertising. Projections of this sort depend on a variety of assumptions, and I have not yet seen one which takes account of our announcement on 19 January. But it was forecast last year that radio advertising revenue could be over £270 million by 1995.
