HC Deb 24 July 1984 vol 64 c564W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if the Minister will list those buildings in which installation of a loop system for hearing-aid purposes requires a licence issued by his Department; and whether a loop system installed in a private house requires a licence.

Mr. Butcher

All such induction loop systems at present require a licence under the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1949. Proposals will be published very shortly, however, for exempting a range of low power devices, including systems such as these, from the licensing requirement.
