§ Mr. Guy Barnett
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, following the recent increase in the television licence fee, he will now consider allowing repayment by the National Television Licence Records Office of refunds on unexpired television licences.
§ Mr. Brittan
Refunds on unexpired television licences are already allowed in certain limited circumstances. The grounds on which refunds may be given must be limited if the licensing system is not to become unmanageable.
