This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

The rewards and benefits of having a career with the BBC are set out plainly on this page which states "Every year we get to choose from a range of great tax-free benefits" and includes such benefits as childcare vouchers, health screening and private medical or dental cover.

I would like you to send me, please, the following information:
1) The number of BBC staff receiving monthly wine deliveries at any time during 2019.
2) For the month of December 2019 only, the number of wine deliveries made to BBC staff under this scheme.
2) For the month of December 2019 only, the direct cost to the BBC of the wine and the deliveries.

I look forward to receiving a prompt and complete response. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Mr A Willmore

Dear FOI Enquiries,

Many thanks for your prompt and informative response.

You are, of course, correct in saying the link I provided is no longer valid and I thank you for directing me to the current information. The link was valid at the time of my request on 2nd August but has since been removed.

It was also valid when BBC FOI responded to RFI20200996 on 31st July ( That is where I initially found that particular link.

The original page to which I referred can still be found at

Yours sincerely,

Mr A Willmore
