Conservatives should cancel the TV Licence




When the Tories set up a panel of broadcasting experts to look into media policies they may not have expected the outcome.

On the panel were Greg Dyke, Charles Dunstone, Lucian Grange and Elisabeth Murdoch.

On the subject of the TV Licence fee, the panel suggested that should the conservatives win the next election, the licence fee should be scrapped.

It is estimated that doing this and giving the current 3.6 billion directly to the BBC, would in fact save 100 million, which is the amount spent on administration and enforcement every year.

However, this is unlikely to come about because it would mean that the government would be directly funding the BBC and so the corporation would lose its independence.
