This Order amends section 1 of the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1949, as it extends to the Channel Islands. It excludes dealers in television receivers from the requirement to have a licence under that section. It also provides that, where the Secretary of State’s functions in relation to programme making have been delegated in the United Kingdom, that delegation also has effect in the Channel Islands.
