HC Deb 28 February 1964 vol 690 cc135-6W
Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that since the introduction of the television licence duty in 1957 it has yielded £67 million; and, in view of the fact that much of this has been collected from old-age pensioners and those on small and limited incomes, if he will introduce a method whereby these persons can be exempt from paying this form of taxation.

Mr. M. Macmillan

This duty was repealed with effect from 1st October, 1963, by the Finance Act, 1963.
