§ Mr. BENSON
asked the Postmaster-General the cost of issuing a wireless receiving licence and upon what basis the cost is calculated?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
The average cost during the last financial year was about 1s. 1d. per licence. This cost was based upon returns of the time occupied, and it included provision not only for the issuing recording and renewing of annual licences, but also for headquarters work and for such duties as the detection of unlicensed stations and any subsequent legal proceedings.
