Mr. Hunt: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what assessment his Department has made of the effect on the affordability of broadband of the proposed levy on fixed telephone lines. 
Mr. Timms: The Government believe that application of the levy will have no significant effect on the affordability of broadband. Ofcom figures show that the average bill has fallen by more than 50p per month in each of the last three years. The average bill is now £7 per month cheaper than in 2005, and £3.81 cheaper per month than 2008.
The Government recognise that those on the lowest incomes might have difficulty paying the fixed line levy and that is why we have confirmed that those on social telephony schemes will be exempt. The social telephony schemes are available to those on income support, income-based jobseeker's allowance, employment support allowance (income rated) or the pension credit guarantee.
