§ Mr. Gregory Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will take steps to introduce more Scottish television in Northern Ireland on the same basis as his commitment to help introduce greater availability in Northern Ireland of Irish language programmes. 
§ Estelle Morris
I have been asked to reply.
The BBC Scotland television service and ITV Scottish, Grampian and Border services are already available to those consumers in Northern Ireland with digital satellite receiving equipment. The extension of Scottish region television services to other areas in the UK is not possible on terrestrial television because of technical and licensing constraints.
