Television: Licensing

Volume 476: debated on Monday 19 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what assessment he has made of the merits of proposals to allocate a proportion of licence fee receipts to other broadcasters. (205714)

The Government have as yet made no such assessment. The work of the Convergence Think Tank (CTT) will include a review of the future financial and institutional framework for the delivery of public service content. The CTT will report its conclusions early in 2009, building on the recommendations of Ofcom’s current review of public service broadcasting.
