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 The BBC is operationally and editorially independent of government and there is no provision for the government to intervene in the BBC’s day-to-day operations. 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 <p>The public deserves to know how its licence fee is being spent, which is why the government required the BBC to publish the salary details of all BBC staff and talent paid over £150,000. This was published for the first time as part of the BBC 2016/17 annual report. The BBC is operationally and editorially independent from government, and the amount it pays its staff and talent is a matter for them. It is for licence fee payers to determine whether the BBC is value for money.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (PECR) regulates the sending of electronic marketing messages (by phone, fax, email or text), as well as the provision of electronic communication services to the public. The Information Commissioner's Office independently regulate PECR and have been clear that organisations must not send marketing emails to individuals without explicit consent. Where these rules are not adhered to, the Commissioner is able to issue enforcement notices, as well as fines of up to £500,000. The Data Protection Bill currently going through the Houses of Parliament also includes tougher rules on consent and strengthens the rights of data subjects, giving them more control over their data.</p> more like this
