HC Deb 29 June 1998 vol 315 c58W
Mr. Hoyle

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will make a statement on his proposals for the reduction of television licence fees for pensioners. [47560]

Mr. Fisher

[holding answer 25 June 1998]: The Government's current Agreement with the BBC provides for a review of the arrangements for funding the Corporation after March 2002. We shall conduct that review in good time to allow decisions to be taken before then. The review will include a detailed consideration of the question of concessions, both for pensioners and others.
