HL Deb 12 July 2004 vol 663 c130WA
Lord Hoyle

asked Her Majesty's Government: How many people in Warrington receive free television licences; and how much they cost. [HL3576]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Culture, Media and Sport (Lord McIntosh of Haringey):

TV Licensing, which administers free television licences for people aged 75 or over as an agent for the BBC, is not able to provide geographical breakdowns of the number of free licences issued. However, 2001 Census data for parliamentary constituencies identifies 12,209 people aged 75 or over living in the Warrington North and South constituencies.
