Audience selection for Question Time on Thursday 17th January 2019

The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please could you explain the process of audience selection for the Question Time audience?

Please could you list how many of the audience on the night of 17th January 2019 were right wing supporting, how many were left wing supporting and how many there were in total?

Please could you also list how many were Brexit supporting and how many were remain supporting?

Please do not hide behind "purposes other than those of journalism, art and literature", be honest and answer this request fully. If the BBC has nothing to hide, then there will be no fear in answering this request fully.

Yours faithfully,

Nigel Hall
