HC Deb 11 February 1987 vol 110 c216W
Mr. Hancock

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the estimated loss of revenue to the British Broadcasting Corporation resulting from Crown exemption from paying television licences.

Mr. Mellor

It is not practicable to estimate how much additional licence revenue would be received if the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1949 were binding on the Crown.
