Treasury currently reviewing universal provision 

Any decision over who pays for the TV licences of people aged 75 and over will be in place for the duration of the new administration.

That's the view of the Cabinet Office Minister Kate Lord-Brennan:


Treasury is conducting a review into the options of funding the licences and looking at introducing additional eligibility criteria.

Currently taxpayers foot the bill for universal provision for pensioners who don't qualify for income support.

That arrangement has been extended until the end of next year whilst the review is ongoing.
