Questions

(c)' No reasonably accurate estimate can be attempted at the present time, due to various factors, such as-
(1) The difficulty of determining the number of receiving sets which are not in operation because they have become obsolete and cannot be replaced or because replacement parts are still difficult to obtain; and
(2) The movement of population to and from wartime industrial centres and changes in domicile of families of service personnel.
