star this property answer text The government considered licence fee funding during BBC Charter Review in 2015. While no funding model meets all the criteria of an ideal system, the current model provides the BBC with a sustainable core income paid by all households that watch or receive television. This model has wider support than any alternative: 60% of Charter Review consultation responses indicated that no change was needed to the current licence fee model, and only 3% favoured full subscription funding. As a result, we have committed to maintain the licence fee funding model for the BBC for the duration of the new 11 year Charter period. The BBC is independent of government. The BBC Board is therefore responsible for the appropriate use of licence fee revenue, and it is for licence fee payers to determine whether the BBC is value for money. more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are working closely with stakeholders and other parties to design the best possible process for the migration of our customers to Universal Credit. The draft Regulations have been out for consultation with the Social Security Advisory Committee and we look forward to their detailed advice which we will consider alongside the other stakeholder contributions we receive. The regulations will come before Parliament in the autumn, and during 2019 we will test and refine our processes to ensure they are working well before we take on larger volumes from 2020 onwards, and complete the process in 2023.</p><p>Our focus will be on safeguarding claimants and ensuring a smooth transition with uninterrupted support. We will have a comprehensive and well-supported preparation period for claimants. This will include a variety of communication formats, including face-to-face, internet and postal notification, to ensure claimants are aware of the managed migration process. There is flexibility to extend that period if necessary for claimants; and a process to ensure that, before the existing benefits are stopped, our staff will check for evidence of complex needs or vulnerability or disability and act accordingly to support the claimant. Additionally, if a claimant misses their deadline to claim there are provisions in the draft Regulations that will allow DWP to back-date their claim.</p>
