asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he will announce a decision about the frequency to be reserved for citizens band radio.
I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to his question and that of the hon. Member for Grimsby (Mr. Mitchell) on 28 February.—[Vol. 979 c. 677–78.]
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will seek information from the Government of the United States of America, Australia or Eire on how legislation of citizens band radio operates in those countries.
A good deal of information is already available to us about the administration of citizens band radio in other countries, including the United States of America and Australia. Citizens band radio has not been legalised in Eire.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many letters he has received in the past six months both for and against the legislation of citizens band radio.
In the last six months we have received over 3,700 items of correspondence about citizens band radio. The overwhelming majority of these have been in favour of the introduction of the facility.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has received the Greater London Council's consultation paper on citizens band radio; and if he will make a statement.
We have received a copy of the consultation paper. We welcome any public discussion of this issue.
