Television: Licensing

Volume 487: debated on Monday 9 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will provide free television licences for poor families. (254898)

The Government looked at television licence fee concessions for a wide range of groups during the BBC Charter review process. There was little consensus as to who should receive concessions, the criteria on which they should be allocated, or how they should be funded. As a result there were no changes to the existing range of concessions.
