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 Protecting children and the vulnerable from being harmed or exploited by gambling is a core objective of the regulation of gambling in Great Britain, and a priority for the government. Operators offering gambling services to people in Great Britain must have a licence from the Gambling Commission and must have effective policies and procedures designed to prevent underage gambling. The Gambling Commission has a range of powers to act in the case of failure, including the power to suspend or revoke a licence, impose financial penalties or prosecute criminal offences. The Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility set out measures to increase existing protections around online gambling and gambling advertising. The Gambling Commission is currently consulting on strengthening age verification protections for online gambling. It is also working with the video games industry to raise awareness of the risks of third parties using its products to provide illegal gambling facilities.<p> </p>

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.
