Licence Fee Evasion Rates

EDM number 810 in 2004-05, proposed by Gregory Campbell on 01/03/2005.

That this House notes that the Department for Culture, Media and Sport has indicated in several replies to Parliamentary Questions from the honourable Member for East Londonderry that the information regarding a regional geographic breakdown of those people not in possession of a valid television licence fee is not available; further notes that the limited information which is available indicates that in certain undefined parts of the United Kingdom there is a considerably higher rate of evasion; and calls for a more open strategy to be deployed in order that people across the United Kingdom will know where the highest evasion rates are and will be able to see that the Department is acting accordingly to ensure licence fee payments are made and the law upheld.

This motion has been signed by a total of 7 MPs.
