asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what consideration has been given by Sir Derek Rayner to the agency agreement between his Department and the Post Office for the issue of television licences through sub-post offices.
Sir Derek Rayner has not been asked to include this agreement in his reviews.
Will the hon. Gentleman assure the House that television licence holders, especially pensioners, the handicapped and the aged, will continue to be able to renew their licences at sub-post offices and to purchase tickets to assist them so to do?
I hope so. It is our desire to have as many outlets as possible for the sale of television licences.
