HC Deb 28 October 1983 vol 47 cc221-2W
Mr. Yeo

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the extension of the concessionary television licence scheme to physically handicapped and mentally handicapped people living in residential accommodation announced in the Official Report on 23 February will be introduced.

Mr. Hurd

Before long, I hope. But we are considering other proposals affecting the regulations which, if agreed, it would be sensible to introduce at the same time.
