NEW DIRECTOR-GENERAL OF THE BBC

  • Session: 2010-12
  • Date tabled: 18.04.2012
  • Primary sponsor: Halfon, Robert
  • Sponsors:

    That this House notes that a new Director-General is being recruited by the BBC; believes that this is a perfect opportunity to bring real democratic accountability and give licence fee payers the chance to elect the new head of the BBC; considers that the BBC cannot continue in the way of a 1970s kleptocracy, and that the undemocratic licence fee has become an anachronism in the days of multi-channel satellite television, as the BBC Licence Fee Payers (Voting Rights) Bill points out; and calls on the Government and the BBC Trust to give licence fee payers a genuine say on who will run the BBC in the future.
