Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Can you provide a list of BBC employees, or presenters who are contracted in to work on BBC shows, who have had to be reminded that nothing should appear on their personal social media accounts that undermine the perception of the BBC’s integrity or impartiality; when such a communication was sent, and what further steps if any have been taken if any further breaches of the rules on social media impartiality continued to occur.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Jones
