asked the Postmaster-General whether he will make a further statement about plans to improve radio reception, especially of the British Broadcasting Corporation's services, in south-east England.

The B.B.C. is aware that in some areas, including parts of the south-east of England, reception of one or more of the programmes is not entirely satisfactory but because of the wavelength changes made last March, the full extent of the problem will not be known until winter conditions have been experienced. The B.B.C. will then be able to review the problem and consider what steps may be desirable and practicable to improve reception. Conditions in south-east England and other poor reception areas will be included in this review.
