HC Deb 05 December 1985 vol 88 c315W
47. Mr. Sumberg

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is satisfied with the resources currently available to detect the evasion of the television licence fee.

Mr. Giles Shaw

Consideration is now being given, in the light of recommendations made by independent consultants appointed to examine the present television licence collection and enforcement procedures employed by the Post Office, to the resources committed to detecting evasion and to their more efficient and effective use.
