Early day motion 1674: BBC Radio Tees
That this House celebrates the work of BBC Radio Tees in serving the communities of Teesside; values its unique role in providing news and information across Middlesbrough, Redcar, Stockton-upon-Tees and Hartlepool; acknowledges, in particular, its service during the recent uncertainty over the future of Teesside Cast Products; is deeply concerned that the BBC is considering reducing local radio output; believes that such a move would undermine local radio stations as a whole and if it were to happen would be a huge disservice to Teesside's communities and to the millions of visitors to the region who rely upon the service; and calls on the BBC to maintain the current level of output from Radio Tees.
Primary sponsor: Tom Blenkinsop, Date tabled: 30.03.2011
