§ 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.
