§ 40. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Postmaster-General what estimate he has made of the number of sound and television receiving sets operating in the United Kingdom without licence; and how many of these were detected in the past year.
§ Mr. Bevins
No reliable estimate can be given of the number of sound and television sets operating in the United Kingdom without licences. I cannot give a number of those detected using sets without a licence, but over 100,000 people took out sound or combined television and sound licences as a direct result of investigations made during 1958.
§ Mr. Sorensen
Are any new devices being considered by which those who have not paid their licence fees can be detected?
