§ Sir F. NELSON
asked the Postmaster-General if he is satisfied that his Department is in a position to collect the full amount due in respect of wireless licences from holders of portable wireless sets?
§ Viscount WOLMER
My Department does its best to ensure that every person who owns a wireless set of any kind shall pay a wireless licence fee. The number of wireless licences now in force is over 2,500,000. I do not think there is any widespread evasion, nor have I any reason to suppose that the owners of portable sets are more prone to evade their legal obligations than other members of the community.
