asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in what circumstances refunds on the payment of television licences are payable; and if he will reconsider the criteria applicable in such cases.

Refunds of television licence fees are generally available:

  • (a) when a licence ceases to be needed within the first 28 days of its validity; or
  • (b) when two licences are taken out but one was obtained in error; or
  • (c) when an unexpired monochrome licence is surrendered on issue of a colour licence.
  • We have no present plans to change these arrangements.
