HC Deb 29 April 1948 vol 450 c81W
97. Mr. M. Lindsay

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that owners of cars on standard petrol only are to be allowed a licence rebate, he will make a similar concession in respect of the wireless licence for the wireless sets installed in cars.

Mr. Hobson

No. A broadcast receiving licence entitles the holder to listen to authorised broadcasting stations for a certain period. The licence charge is not based on the number of times the receiver is used, or, if the set is fitted in a motor car, on the number of miles the vehicle travels.
