Why after asking the public about the TV Licencing you kept what the BBC wanted?

The request was refused by Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Dear Department for Culture, Media and Sport,

What was the reasoning that the department used after asking the public what should happen to the BBC TV Licencing.

It appeared that since Tony Hall said that he would get the BBC to reduce content, the department decided to what the BBC wanted as in keep it was a Crime not to have a licence if watching live TV.

Please provide all emails from the BBC/Tony Hall that was send to the department during this time.

Yours faithfully,

Joe Jordan
