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

The government has embedded impartiality in the BBC Charter and public purposes. The BBC Board is responsible for ensuring the BBC delivers its Charter obligations and Ofcom, as the independent regulator of the BBC, is responsible for holding the BBC to account in fulfilling its mission and public purposes. Alongside this, the Ofcom Broadcasting Code requires all broadcasters, including the BBC, to report and present news with due accuracy and impartiality. more like this

star this property answer text As arm’s length bodies, DCMS-sponsored museums determine their own operational matters, including the decision to charge fees for re-use of images of items in their collections - this is an operational policy matter that therefore sits with the institutions themselves. As such it is not appropriate for Government to intervene in these matters and therefore no assessment has been made, or guidance provided, on image re-use. We are currently in the process of revising performance indicators for all fifteen of the DCMS sponsored museums. We are reviewing a broad range of museum activity and government policy in order to inform our decision around which performance indicators will be selected for inclusion in the museum management agreements from 2020. We are not in a position, at this stage, to comment on specific performance indicators as the project is ongoing. The National Archives has published guidance for public sector bodies on complying with the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015, including the attached guidance specifically for the culture sector, which can also be found here: <a href="http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/information-management/psi-implementation-guidance-cultural-sector.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/information-management/psi-implementation-guidance-cultural-sector.pdf</a> It is each Accounting Officer's responsibility to ensure that their organisation is compliant with the terms and principles of Managing Public Money. DCMS has a governance framework in place and regularly engages with its arm’s length bodies regarding compliance issues.

star this property answer text <p>The Government does not hold data on the number of children living with parents who have problems with gambling. The Gambling Commission recently published Gambling behaviour in Great Britain 2016, which reports participation, at-risk gambling and problem gambling rates. The data, drawn from combined Health surveys, shows that the rate of problem gambling in Great Britain was 0.7%, a figure which has remained relatively stable over many years.</p><p><br>The Government's response to the Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility set out a number of initiatives to improve understanding of gambling-related harm, how to prevent and reduce it, the need for treatment and the most effective means of delivering it. This was part of a wider package of measures designed to protect those vulnerable to harm, including reducing the maximum stake from £100 to £2 on B2 gaming machines and strengthening protections around gambling advertising and online gambling.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Gambling Commission carries out an annual survey of 11-16 year olds, which includes questions on advertising. In 2017 80% of young people reported having ever seen gambling advertisements on TV, 70% on social media, 66% on other websites, 62% posters and 50% in newspapers. This data looks at awareness of gambling advertising, which may be different to exposure, since not all people will recall what they heard or saw. The survey data is not available over a five year period.</p><p>Advertising is generally measured in terms of numbers of impacts, ie one advert seen by one person. The total number of TV gambling adverts seen by children rose between 2005 and 2012 and has been falling since then. In 2016 children aged 4-15 saw 25% fewer gambling adverts than they did in 2012, and children aged 10-15 saw 28% fewer. On average, a child currently sees around three gambling adverts on TV in a week.</p><p>There are strict controls on the content of gambling advertising, which must not be targeted at children or appeal particularly to them. The Government Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures set out a package of initiatives to strengthen existing protections around gambling advertising. This includes new guidance on protecting children and young people from the Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP), due later this year, and significant new research commissioned by GambleAware into the effects of marketing and advertising on children, young people and other vulnerable people. This will look at the targeting of online and social media advertising and the impact of advertising on certain groups.</p><p> </p>
