HC Deb 19 June 1974 vol 875 c167W
Mrs. Chalker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ensure that the group television licences available to pensioners living in local authority sheltered flatlets are available to all persons living in sheltered housing groups.

Mr. Alexander W. Lyon

The old persons' homes television licence is not restricted to local authority housing but is available to all pensioners living in accommodation which qualifies for the licence. If the hon. Member has any particular case in mind, and would like to send me details of it, I should be glad to look into it.
