BBC licence decriminalisation consultation opens

I've had a huge number of constituents contact me about their concerns regarding the TV license, so I'm really pleased with the Government's decision to launch a consultation on whether non-payment of the TV license fee should remain a criminal offence. 

In the 21st century, with thousands of media choices available, there's no way that taxpayers should be funding this! 

Let's have a choice - a subscription system where the BBC can continue to make great programmes but where they will have to work to compete in the market like everyone else!
