HC Deb 08 November 1948 vol 457 c159W
Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representation he has received from old age pensioners for concession in regard to wireless licences; and what reply he has made.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

I have been asked to reply. From time to time letters are received from old age pensioners suggesting that they should pay less for their wireless licences than other people. I am sorry, however, that after sympathetically considering this matter, the Government are unable to give any preferential treatment in this matter to old age pensioners, and I have replied to all representations accordingly.
