asked the Minister of Information whether he will consider with the B.B.C. the opening of an eastern regional station in order that the poor reception of wireless transmission now existing in most parts of East Anglia can be remedied.
:The B.B.C. does not consider that the opening of a regional station in East Anglia is practicable, partly owing to the shortage of available frequencies, but they are considering methods of improving the medium wave regional service for those parts of Norfolk and Suffolk where reception is poor after dark. The reception of the Light or National programme on long wave should be just as satisfactory over East Anglia as it was before the war.
