Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Under the Freedom Of Information act, I would like to request that you provide me with the number of complaints received by the BBC regarding BBC News' political editor Laura Kuenssberg, between the date of her appointment (22nd July 2015) and today (16th May 2017).

Specifically, I would like to know the number of complaints received which refer specifically to Laura Kuenssberg's coverage, where the complaint was made on the basis of a perceived bias or lack of impartiality.

I consider that the information requested is not excluded from the Act because statistical information about complaints is not held specifically for the purpose of 'journalism, art or literature'.

Yours faithfully,

Michael Keefe
