Advocate general will give view on colossal 3G licences case next month

Mobile phone giants attempting to claim back £3.3bn in VAT on 3G licences
will discover on 7 September whether they are likely to be successful in their
bids.

The five licencees – Hutchison 3G, mm02, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone – are
awaiting a ruling on the issue from the European Court of Justice.

is followed in most cases, will give a view on 7 September.

The five paid £22.5bn for the licences to operate the new mobile phone
technology.
