Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
As a license fee payer I am concerned about the expense accounts being run by journalists at the BBC, and would like to first enquire about how much John Sweeny spends on expenses, particularly entertainment. To be clear, I am not asking who might also be the beneficiary of expensed items since I understand that it is important to maintain the confidentiality of his sources, but please provide the amount spent in aggregate for entertainment at least.
