asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many motorists were asked by police in London to produce licences for their car radio sets during 1953; how many prosecutions resulted; and how many convictions were obtained.

The police are not empowered to demand the production of licences for car wireless sets. If it comes to their notice in the course of other inquiries that a set is unlicensed, the facts are reported to the General Post Office. No such cases were reported in the Metropolitan police district in 1953.
