HC Deb 22 November 1984 vol 68 c250W
45. Mr. Phillip Oppenheim

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is satisfied with the present television concessionary licensing system.

Mr. Giles Shaw

We recognise that the present concessionary licence arrangements are anomalous in a number of respects. The concessionary scheme for retired people in residential care was modified earlier this year to enable disabled people to qualify on the same terms as retirement pensioners, but my right hon. and learned Friend has not ruled out the possibility of further examination.
