HC Deb 08 November 1974 vol 880 c263W
Mr. George Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is prepared to review the regulation that forbids a proportionate refund of a colour television licence fee when the owner of the set changes over to a black and white set.

Mr. Alexander W. Lyon

No. The cost of meeting these and similar claims for refunds, including the necessary checking, would be too high.
