Knesset Gives Final Reading to Bill to Make Tv a Regular Service

Download PDF for this date

The Israel Parliament has given the final reading to a bill which would terminate the present experimental status of television in Israel and make it a regular service. Israeli television, like radio, according to the bill, will come under the Broadcasting Authority which is run by a public body. Parliamentary responsibility for television will rest with the Minister of Information.
