HC Deb 24 March 1998 vol 309 c104W
Mrs. May

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans he has to extend the scheme of concessionary television licences to housing association properties housing both qualifying and non-qualifying residents. [35837]

Mr. Fisher

The Government have no plans at present for any changes to the concessionary television licence scheme. However, the Government's Agreement with the BBC provides for a review of future funding arrangements prior to March 2002. We shall conduct that review in good time to allow decisions to be taken before then. It will include a detailed consideration of licence fee concessions.
