BBC Charter Review

Volume 599: debated on Wednesday 16 September 2015

When I presented the BBC charter review consultation to the House on 16 July 2015, I was clear that it was the first step in the Government’s charter review process.

I am pleased to announce today one of the next steps of that process: an independent review into the governance and regulation of the BBC. The review will run over the autumn and will conclude in early 2016. The review will be led on behalf of the Government by Sir David Clementi.

A copy of the terms of reference has been deposited in the Libraries of both Houses.
