HC Deb 13 February 1967 vol 741 cc30-1W
106. Mr. Parker

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will seek to issue television licences free to all old-age pensioners.

Mr. Edward Short

Although I understand the considerations which led my hon. Friend to put forward this proposal, I have concluded that it would be wrong for me to seek powers to make a concession which would create serious anomalies.
