asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many repayments of the £6 refund have been made in error to television licence holders; and in how many cases demands have been made for the return of these payments to the Post Office at the latest date for which figures are available.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
Some 26,000 repayments of £6 have been made to television licence holders; of these four cases have come to light as having ben made in error. Three of the recipients returned the money unasked and the fourth repaid it after being requested to do so.
