asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many colour television licences were issued in Wales in 1979 and in the latest year for which figures are available.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
Information about the number of colour television licences issued in Wales in the course of a particular year is not readily available, but the number of such licences which were in force in the area covered by the Wales and Marches Postal Board as at 31 December 1979 was 779,667. The comparable figure for 30 November 1985 was 981,875.
