British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) - Salford.

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC),

I am writing to ascertain the following:

How many households in Salford have a registered television licence?
How many households in Salford do not have a registered television licence?

It is my understanding that the BBC often offers tickets to public for events on a ballot basis.
However, it is also my understanding that tickets allocated are split in 70%/30% in favour of people with a Salford postcode.

Therefore:

Why do households or registered postcodes in Salford receive more tickets for events that are held by the BBC in Salford?

Why does the BBC discriminate against the rest of the United Kingdom (UK) when allocating tickets for events funded by the BBC?

How many tickets have been allocated to a Salford Post Office Box address in the last 5 (five) years?
For the avoidance of doubt dates will be October 1st 2011 to September 30th 2016.

What proof of identity is required to ensure tickets allocated to a Salford postal address are not sold or passed to a third party?

Yours faithfully,

Wayne Tully
