BBC Staff React to Licence Fee Deal

Whitto has confirmed the news in the Sunday papers that the BBC will have to stump up the cost of free TV licences for over-75s.

The Beeb’s Europe correspondent is not taking it so well:

The chair of the BBC Trust complains:

Though DG Tony Hall insists:

“We have secured the right deal for the BBC in difficult economic circumstances for the country… In the circumstances, the BBC has agreed to take on the costs of free licences for over-75s, and after the next parliament, will take on the policy.”

Of course the people actually “taking on the cost” is the licence fee payer…
