§ 48. Mr. McNamara
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will re-draw the declaration for television licences to enable his Department to make refunds where the estate of a deceased person holding a television licence with an unexpired period of 28 days or more may surrender the licence in order that the estate may gain the unexpired portion of the licence fee.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
No. The grounds on which refunds may be given must be limited if the licensing system is not to become unmanageable.
