TV license

Andrew T Clark made this Freedom of Information request to British Broadcasting Corporation

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Which Sections of The Communications Act 2003 and The Communications (Television Licensing) Regulations 2004 say a valid TV license can only be issued when a prospective license holder supplies their personal name and if no such name is provided, but the license fee paid or fees held, a valid license cannot be issued for a specific address whereupon it does not show a person's name? I want an electronic email copy of the information you hold for this information request or connected to any powers or practice to enforce or request provision of a person's name before a valid TV license can be issued, under any basis, be that a policy, internal guidance, case law or other legislation.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew T Clark
