HC Deb 05 February 1976 vol 904 c688W
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
