Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please advise the following:

1) Does the BBC receive tickets for Wimbledon?

2) If yes, how many for each day?

3) Are the tickets given to presenters or other staff?

4) if yes, how are tickets allocated?

5) Why aren't tickets offered to licence fee payers, in view of the fact that the licence fee payer funds the BBC?

6) When a BBC weather presenter finishes their programme broadcast (e.g. 11/07/17 - Carol) do they then stay at Wimbledon and claim expenses from the BBC for meals etc?

Yours faithfully,

Wayne Tully

Dear FOI Enquiries,

I am writing further to your response.

At no time did I suggest that the BBC "sells tickets" i asked why the licence payer isn't offered the tickets as they fund the BBC, therefore, without this funding the BBC would not have the broadcast rights and "free tickets" to " reward" staff with.

So, why do employees of the BBC receive tickets in "exchange for a charitable donation" which could be as low as £1.00 whilst licence payers aren't offered the same just because they aren't a BBC employee?

Incidentally can the "charitable donation" be written off against personal income tax or corporate tax, for those utilising a company during their employment with the BBC?

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Tully
