HC Deb 11 March 1980 vol 980 c522W
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.
