TV licensing Search warrant information

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I am making this request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Chapter 16 section 2.11 of the TV Licensing Visiting Procedures contains the following bolded note:

"NB – a refusal to provide name, to cooperate with the interview or to otherwise be "difficult" does not amount to an obstruction of the warrant".

Under the terms of the Act please provide any information held by the BBC or TV Licensing that explains/defines what being "difficult" means in terms of potential search warrant obstruction.

also

In Chapter 16 section 1.3, it refers to "Search Warrant Application form HH50". Please provide a copy of form HH50 and all policy information surrounding its completion."

Yours faithfully,
Neil Blood

I would suggest that the redaction in Disclosure Document 2 (the HH50) is "TV listings magazine".

No joke. That's the "evidential" standard these people resort to.
