Tv licencing

We're waiting for Liam Bedford to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear British I wish to make a formal complaint about my TV licence and how I am being treated as a result of only having paid five months in advance and the fact nobody can aswer my questions regarding this. I currently have a valid licence and paid over £80 in just three months that equates to 2 thirds of my yearly premium in just a quater of the period yet still had threats to cancel my license and already passed to an external debt collection agency who cannot answer my questions and passed the account back. I would like to know why I am demanded to pay six months in advance for a licence I have never know of it before and request in writing how legally you can do this. I am currently in a situation where if I turned off my TV and cancelled my license or moved out of the country therefore I would be entitled to a refund as I am in credit having already paid around 9 months of the licence and only 4 months in to the year. If almost 15 million tv licence payer's were just the trivial amount of around £70 in credit that is in the region of £1 billion in an account somewhere and accumulated intrest under the fredom of information act you should be obliged to tell me what happens to the said intrest who's bank it is in and how the money is spent and tv licencing should make the public aware if they can legally demand money so far in advance and if not the options including keeping their money in their own bank

Yours faithfully,
Liam Bedford
