HC Deb 18 March 1985 vol 75 c335W
Mr. Ashton

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether, when the new television licence fee arrangements are announced, he will arrange for this to be made as an oral statement to the House instead of the usual written question.

Mr. Biffen

It is not the normal practice to indicate in advance the form which announcements will take. This announcement will be made in the manner thought most appropriate having regard to its importance and other relevant factors.
