HC Deb 14 June 1990 vol 174 c313W
22. Mr. Skinner

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent representations he has received from pensioners' representatives about free television licences; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

Since 1 January we have received 103 letters from people representing pensioners about free or reduced price television licences for pensioners. Ninety-seven were from hon. Members and six from organisations. We have no plans to change the present concessionary arrangements.
