Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I am making this request for information in accordance with the terms of section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Over the last few weeks I noticed several online complaints about TV Licensing distributing correspondence in envelopes without the correct postage paid markings on them. The recipients of those TV Licensing missives were asked to cover the unpaid postage costs by Royal Mail.

Under the terms of the Act, please provide the following information:
1. The number of TV Licensing letters that have been distributed in envelopes without the correct postage paid markings. Please provide this information as a monthly breakdown since 1st January 2017.
2. All correspondence between the BBC and relevant TV Licensing contractor about the distribution of these incorrectly marked envelopes. Please provide this information from 1st January 2017.

In accordance with section 11 of the Act, I require your response to be delivered in electronic format to the return email address associated with this request.

I look forward to your timely and concise response, in accordance with the requirements of the Act.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Jones
