Payment of carbon offsets for airline tickets

The request was successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I am a rugby fan and a huge supporter of BBC coverage of the Six Nations rugby competition. I hate Murdoch's malign influence. I was delighted today to listen to Eddie Butler commentating on the Italy vs Ireland match less than 24 hours after I had listened to his excellent commentary on the match in which England defeated Wales in Cardiff. I presume that Mr Butler flew from the UK to Rome to enable him to commentate on both events. Can you please confirm whether or not carbon offsets were purchased when his airline tickets were purchased?

Yours faithfully,

Mike Post
