HC Deb 02 August 1962 vol 664 c782
26. Mr. Grimond

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take steps to allow the British Broadcasting Corporation to be paid that amount of the licence fee that comprises an excise duty.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

No, Sir.

Mr. Grimond

Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether he has had any consultations with the B.B.C. about the financing of its future development?

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I do not think that that arises out of this Question.
