§ Mr. Russell
asked the Postmaster-General how many viewers are not obtaining full value for their licence fee by reason of being outside the range of Independent Television programmes.
§ Mr. Marples
There is no record of the number of television licence-holders who are outside the range of Independent Television programmes, but a very rough figure puts it at 2.2 million. Payment of66W a broadcast receiving licence fee is not related, however, to the number of programmes received.
