Cancelling TV licences

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Who took the decision that the BBC should ban people from cancelling TV licences?

What is the legal basis for this?

Who decided not to tell people that they can cancel the payment via their bank rather than via the BBC?

Yours faithfully,

Abdul Hai
