Expenditure buying photos of government papers taken in public by journalistic photographers

We're waiting for Alan C Harold to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
Today (6 Sept 18) on Politics Live your Political Editor appeared to reveal yet more photos of private papers taken, without the consent of the owner and in public, using a powerful lens.
The photos revealed, by her own admission, nothing the public were not aware of in general and the Political Editor sought to justify their inclusion in the programme on the grounds that she found seeing the content in print to be more impactful.
Payment for such invasion of privacy encourages the behaviour which I find unacceptable and I request information of the amount of expenditure made securing such photographic material in each of the last 5 financial years and this financial year to date.

Yours faithfully,
Alan Harold
