§ Mr. Ian Gilmour
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will suspend his current practice with regard to television licences bought at 191W the old rate by persons already in possession of a licence until the completion of the investigation of this matter by the Parliamentary Commissioner.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
No. The Parliamentary Commissioner Act 1967 provides that an investigation by the Commissioner shall not affect any action taken by the Department concerned, or any power or duty of that Department to take further action with respect to any matters subject to the investigation. I shall, of course, give most careful consideration to the Commissioner's report of the results of his investigation.
