Wording and Approval of TV Licensing Letters

Peter Jones 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 successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

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

I am aware that TV Licensing, acting on behalf of the BBC as Licensing Authority, sends regular information/warning letters to unlicensed properties in an effort to "educate" the occupier about TV licensing requirements.

Please send me any BBC/TV Licensing produced documents relating to the structure, format, wording and approval process for these letters.

Who precisely has the final say on whether or not a letter is acceptable to distribute to unlicensed properties?

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

Yours faithfully,

Peter Jones
