Reform Of The BBC

EDM number 588 in 2010-12, proposed by Robert Halfon on 21/07/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Broadcasting.

That this House believes thatthe BBC should be subject to the same transparency and democracy expected of Government; considers that each licence-fee payer could be given a unique PIN number, so that they could vote annually via the internet on the BBC's programmes, the level of BBC operational activity and administrative overheads, salaries, and on the standards of BBC programmes; considers that in each five-year Parliament there could be a vote as to whether to retain or scrap the licence fee, or to reduce it; and therefore calls on Ministers to extend their revolution in open government to the BBC and beyond.

This motion has been signed by a total of 1 MPs.
