BBC: TV Licence Fee Decriminalisation Consultation Launches
In the News
Culture Secretary Nicky Morgan has launched a public consultation on whether non-payment of the TV licence fee should remain a criminal offence.
Currently, anyone who watches or records live TV or uses iPlayer without a TV licence is guilty of a criminal offence and could go to prison.
Baroness Morgan said it was time to think about keeping the fee "relevant" in a "changing media landscape".
At last the discussion has started, let's hope that they get rid of this archaic tax at the end of the talks!
