EXPLANATORY NOTE

These Regulations increase the amount of the basic fee for television licences from 36.50 to 37.50 in the case of black and white, and from 109.00 to 112.00 in the case of colour. In the case of licences for hotels and hospitality areas and mobile units, where the fee is calculated by reference to "the relevant amount", that amount is also increased from 36.50 to 37.50 in the case of black and white, and from 109.00 to 112.00 in the case of colour. In the case of instalment licences - 

    (a) the issue fee and subsequent instalments for the premium instalment licence (which is not available in the Channel Islands) are increased from 28.50 to 29.25 with the total amount payable being 117.00;

    (b) amendments are made in relation to the budget instalment licence and the "Easy entry" licence (which is not available in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man) so that in every case the total amount payable is 112.00.


Notes:

[1] 1949 c. 54; section 2 is amended by paragraph 2 of Part 1 of Schedule 18 to the Broadcasting Act 1990 (c. 42). That Part of that Schedule was extended to Guernsey by the Broadcasting Act 1990 (Guernsey) Order 1991 (S.I. 1991/191); to Jersey by the Broadcasting Act 1990 (Jersey) Order 1991 (S.I. 1991/193); and to the Isle of Man by the Broadcasting Act 1990 (Isle of Man) Order 1991 (S.I. 1991/192). Section 2 is further amended by paragraph 1 of Schedule 1 to the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1998 (c. 6), and those amendments are extended to Guernsey by the Wireless Telegraphy (Guernsey) Order 1998 (S.I. 1998/1511); to Jersey by the Wireless Telegraphy (Jersey) Order 1998 (S.I. 1998/1512); and to the Isle of Man by the Wireless Telegraphy (Isle of Man) Order 1998 (S.I. 1998/1510). The amendments made by the 1998 Act in part supersede those made by the 1990 Act and accordingly paragraph 2(2) of Part 1 of Schedule 18 to the 1990 Act is repealed by Schedule 2 to the 1998 Act.back
