The CV10709 is the UK government specification for a valve that has the PL82 as its commercial equivalent. In this exhibit we see that the PL82 is a direct match for the procurement standard for the CV10709.
Hall Electric with their Haltron brand were re-sellers and mainly supplied for export.
This valve would normally be found in audio stages of television receivers. A pair used in push pull class AB1 would deliver 9 Watts at 4 % distortion. The peak to peak grid signal voltage would be 26 Volts and the shared anode load would be 4,000 Ohms.
