HC Deb 07 December 1994 vol 251 c282W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage how many representations he has received on the subject of increasing the discount for purchase of television licenses by partially sighted people in the last year; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dorrell

In the year to 30 November 1994, I have received three letters on this subject. As I explained in my reply to the hon. Member's question of 28 June this year,Official Report, columns 470–71, registered partially sighted people are not entitled to a reduction in their television licence fee on account of being partially sighted.
