§ 48. Mr. R. Gibson
asked the Postmaster-General what increase has taken place in the number of wireless receiving licences in Scotland during the last 12 months; and what are the figures for each of the counties, cities and large burghs at the latest available date and for the corresponding date a year ago, respectively?
§ Major Tryon
The total number of wireless receiving licences in force in Scotland on 31st May, 1939, was 772,170, which is 34,813 more than the number on 31st May, 1938. I am unable to give detailed figures in the precise form asked for by the hon. and learned Member. I will, however, send him a statement which, I hope, will answer the purpose in view.
