The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

1. How much does the BBC pay the current editor of Private Eye for his regular weekly appearances on your show: "Have I got news for you" ? How much do you pay other panelists? In particular, Mr Merton.

2. Are such payments transparent in your financial accounts?

Yours faithfully,

Mike Magee
