HC Deb 16 March 1960 vol 619 c107W
63. Mr. Lipton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce legislation to enable him to take part of the profits of commercial television to reduce the cost of television licences.

Sir E. Boyle

No. I cannot give any specific commitment of this kind; but any review of broadcasting and television would need to take into account finance over the whole field.
