The BBC is operationally and editorially independent from government, and the amount it pays its staff and talent is a matter for them.

Relief is also available for any individual or company who donates cultural artefacts through the Cultural Gift Scheme.</p><p> </p><p>At the Giving Roundtables held in 2016, the Government heard about opportunities to increase charitable giving by higher-rate taxpayers. Further announcements about those opportunities will follow.</p><p>The £4m Libraries: Opportunities for Everyone innovation fund, managed by Arts Council England on behalf of DCMS, was set up to pilot library service projects that provide benefit disadvantaged people and places in England.
