asked the Assistant Postmaster-General when it is proposed to open a television studio to serve Scotland.

No plans have yet been made to provide television studios outside London, but outside broadcasts from Scotland will be included in the television programme.

Will the hon. Gentleman endeavour to persuade the B.B.C. to develop as speedily as possible a television newsreel service for Scotland?

That is outside the Question which the hon. Member has on the Order Paper.

Further to the point about a television studio in Scotland, would it be possible to make more use of Scottish talent not only for Scotland but also for the general service from London?

The selection of talent by the B.B.C. is a matter for the B.B.C. and not for me.
