HC Deb 03 February 1983 vol 36 c162W
34. Mr. Winnick

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now give further consideration to bringing in a concessionary television licence fee.

Mr. Mellor

We have no plans to introduce any general concessionary television licence. We are, however, reviewing the position of those physically and mentally handicapped people in residential homes whom I mentioned in the reply I gave today to the question by the hon. Member for Bolsover (Mr. Skinner).
