HC Deb 24 July 1939 vol 350 cc1019-20
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.
