Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

The DWP recently handed over to the BBC the administration and liability of providing free TV Licences for the Over 75’s. How much is the DWP paying the BBC to administer these free TV licenses, and over what period? For example, £53 million was paid in January 2018 - how many other payments have been paid, how much these payments are in £ terms, and how many other payments are there scheduled for the future, and for what amounts?

Yours faithfully,

Nigel Nelson
