| covered under his parents license?)

The little hand held thing is *only* covered by their TV licence when they
are not using any TV at their home. :-(

Not true. The requirement for not using the 'home' TV is for STATIC
caravans or mobile homes (ie. 2nd homes). Touring caravans and battery
powered TV's are always covered by the home licence - even if a main TV is
being used at home:

TV Licensing say "If you or any other person uses a TV in your static
caravan or mobile home and another is being used in your main home at the
same time, you'll need a separate TV Licence" and then "The TV Licence for
your main address will, however, automatically cover any TV used in a
touring caravan, vehicle or boat, or any televisions operated by their own
internal batteries."
