Dear FOI Enquiries,

Thanks you Information Policy and Compliance Team for your reply.

Can you please tell me why you are NOT getting fees from companies whose products are shown on programmes i.e. Eastenders - or are these freebies to the companies whose products are shown ?

Products are being shown now on a regular basis, on many programmes it doesn't take the Chancellor of the Exchequer to work out this could be a good funding stream for the BBC and maybe lower the Licence Fee

Yours sincerely,

Margaret Mills
