§ Mr. Kaufman
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will seek an explanation from the NTVLRO as to the reasons for its delay in making a substantive response to Manchester city council's application for Keary close, Gorton, to be accepted as eligible for the reduced television licence; and if he will request the NTVLRO to make such a response without further delay.
§ Mr. Mellor
On 18 April 1989 NTVLRO refused an application made in March 1989 by the city of Manchester social services department in respect of accommodation at Annesley gardens and Keary close. In response to representations dated 16 June, NTVLRO wrote again on 28 June 1989 seeking more information. NTVLRO has no trace of a reply to that letter, and has therefore been unable to consider the matter further.
