§ 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.
