  • UK lawmakers urge changes to BBC licence fee

    Reuters - Thu 26 Feb, 2015 5:35 AM IST

    By Kate Holton LONDON (Reuters) - The BBC should reduce its output and the television licence fee should eventually be scrapped, a parliamentary committee has said after considering the role of the publicly funded broadcaster in the wake of a string of scandals and industry changes. In a report on the future of the BBC, the cross-party Culture, Media and Sport Committee said while the licence fee was still the most suitable funding method in the short term, it should eventually be replaced by a wider broadcasting levy that could also support other sources of local and regional news. "When an organisation is in receipt of nearly 4 billion pounds of public money, very big questions have to be asked about how that money is provided and spent, and how that organisation is governed and made accountable," said Chairman John Whittingdale. The corporation's position has also been damaged by a spate of recent scandals including the handling of a child sex case, a failed 100 million-pound digital project and questions over large executive severance payments.
