To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage how many cable licences have not been acted upon and have lapsed. [4947]

Eight licences have been revoked because of the failure of the licensee to implement his proposals. In six of these cases, the area has been readvertised and new licences awarded in respect of five; an application for the sixth is currently under consideration by the Independent Television Commission.
