To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent representations he has received from pensioners' representatives about free television licences; and if he will make a statement.

Since 1 January we have received 103 letters from people representing pensioners about free or reduced price television licences for pensioners. Ninety-seven were from hon. Members and six from organisations. We have no plans to change the present concessionary arrangements.
