HC Deb 26 February 1963 vol 672 c135W
44. Mr. Costain

asked the Postmaster-General how many people have been found to be using broadcast receiving sets for sound and for television without licences during the year 1962, or the year to the latest available date.

Mr. Bevins

Our records do not show the precise information asked for by my hon. Friend, but more than 50,000 sound licences and 130,000 combined television and sound licences were taken out as a direct result of licence enquiries carried out during 1961. I will give my hon Friend the figures for 1962 when they are ready.
