Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
In your annual report you state on page 50 that "Including content, distribution and general support costs, £261 million (2019: £278 million) was spent on the
BBC World Service operating licence."
I want a breakdown of that £261 million spend and an explanation of what spending was reduced or stopped from 2019 leading to the fall of £17 million.
