Perceptions Of The BBC

EDM number 1953 in 2006-07, proposed by Bob Spink on 18/07/2007.

That this House is concerned that the BBC's new Charter, which took full effect from 1st January 2007, has so far failed to change both the perception of the Corporation's bias and its editorial and policy directions; and calls on the BBC's governing body to address these issues frankly and openly, particularly in respect of partiality on issues such as the European Union, and to publish a statement on how it intends to improve public sector trust in the BBC as a strictly impartial and much valued public service broadcaster.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
