TV Licensing, which administers free television licences for people aged 75 or over as agents for the BBC, are not able to provide geographical breakdowns of the number of free licences issued. However, information on the number of households in each constituency in Great Britain (with at least one person aged 75 or over claiming the winter fuel payment as at winter 2005-06, compiled by the Department for Work and Pensions,) is available in the House Libraries.
