§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to ensure that in those areas where only one or two of the three general television networks are received the television licence fee is reduced in proportion.
§ Dr. Summerskill
No. Many factors influence the quality of reception, which can vary from house to house and from time to time. The use of such a variable base for the fixing of licence fees would not be practicable.
