HC Deb 21 January 1985 vol 71 c275W
Mr. Hicks

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the total revenue derived from hotel television licences in 1984; and what is the estimated amount for 1985 under the new arrangements for hotel television licensing.

Mr. Giles Shaw

Television licence fee revenue paid by hotels in 1984 is not separately recorded, but we estimate that it was about £1 million. We estimate that under the new licensing requirements for hotels revenue from this source in 1985 will be some £3 million.
