What assessment he has made of the effect on people over the age of 75 in Scotland of the removal of free TV licences.
The Government remains deeply disappointed with the BBC’s decision to restrict the over-75 licence fee concession to only those in receipt of pension credit.
We recognise the value of free TV licences for over-75s in Scotland and the rest of the UK and believe they should be funded by the BBC.
