Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
Does the BBC maintain a register of BBC employees' interests? If so does it include interests in private sector companies bidding for healthcare provision funded by the NHS?
If such a register exists, can I have access to it please?

Yours faithfully,

David Smith

Dear FOI Enquiries,
Further to my recent request on the declaration of interests in private health care firms, although the BBC has 20,000 employees, it must be possible to identify those employees who are able to influence what is covered in news or current affairs programs. Could you not check just the declaration of interests of those those people?

I request an internal review of this please.

Yours sincerely,

Mr D Smith

Dear FOI Enquiries,
Thank you for carrying out the internal review. I accept that your response is in accordance with the special exemption under the Freedom of Information Act as applying to the BBC. I merely wish to signal to interested readers that this exemption is wholly inappropriate. If we cannot trust a public service broadcaster funded by what amounts to a tax, who can we trust? I do not expect a reply to this.

Yours sincerely,

Mr D Smith
