2:00pm Saturday 23rd February 2013 in News
TV LICENSING has revealed 191 people were caught watching TV without a licence in Malvern during 2012, 686 in Worcester and 130 in Evesham.
The average evasion rate remains at just over five per cent, meaning almost 95 per cent of homes are licensed.
Mark Whitehouse of TV Licensing said: “The data released today shows evasion remains at historically low levels, with the overwhelming majority of people ensuring they are correctly licensed. In order to be fair to the law-abiding majority who do pay for their licence, we’ll continue to pursue the people do not pay.”
He said payment options for people who find it difficult to pay in one go include a weekly cash payment plan, a savings card or a monthly direct debit scheme.
