§ 86. Mr. Gourlay
asked the Postmaster-General what would be the estimated annual cost of giving retirement pensioners a television licence at the reduced rate of £2 per year.
§ Mr. Bevins
I do not know how many retirement pensioners have television sets or how many households include retirement pensioners who would be eligible, but I estimate the cost of the concession the hon. Member has in mind at about £5 million.
