asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what consideration he has given to requiring hotels to possess a licence for every individual television set on the premises; and if he will make a statement.
The working party on the administration of the broadcast receiving licence system has recommended that hotels should pay additional licence fees for television sets installed in the private rooms of guests. As I indicated on 1 December in reply to the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Sparkbrook (Mr. Hattersley), I am considering how that proposal might be implemented.—[Vol. 14, c. 140.]
