TV Licence Enforcement in Student Halls

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please could you provide the following information:

1. The number of enforcement officer visits made to student halls of residence in the past 12 months.

2. The number of successful prosecutions in the past year against students living in halls of residence.

Furthermore, in the letter to students living in halls, it is stated (with reference to students not requiring a licence) that they ‘should still tell us’. I am intrigued as to why the word ‘should’ is used as this implies a duty or obligation. Can you please confirm that there is no duty for a student, or anyone else, to inform TV Licensing that they do not require a licence?

Yours faithfully,

Nick Waldron
