asked the Postmaster-General what alternative sites were considered before it was proposed to build a television relay station near the summit of White Horse Hill, Berkshire; and if he will reconsider this matter in view of the representations that have been made to him.

A number of sites were considered, but that on White Horse Hill was the most suitable technically. The precise location was only decided upon after full consultation with the local planning authorities who raised no objection once the Post Office had agreed to the conditions which they laid down. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I have given to the hon. Member for Abingdon (Sir R. Glyn).
