It is already an offence under section 1 of the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1949 to use such radio equipment except under authority of a licence issued by the Secretary of State ; and it is not our policy to issue licences to members of the public authorising the use of radio devices intended to detect the presence of police radar transmissions.
