HC Deb 02 December 1959 vol 614 cc1179-80
44. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Postmaster-General approximately how many licences were issued for sound broadcasting and television during the last twelve months for users of sets in the Borough of Leyton.

Mr. Bevins

No separate record is kept of licences for sound broadcasting and television issued in the Borough of Leyton and I am sorry that the information is not available.

Mr. Sorensen

Can some means be found by which this estimate can be secured, to give some idea of the number which are operating in a given area?

Mr. Bevins

Unfortunately our records refer only to regions. If the hon. Member is violently interested I will try to give him an estimate.
