TV Licence increase backed by MP’s


by David Allen

Many MP’s were against an increase in the TV Licence fee including the conservative leader David Cameron, yet it seems that not all MP’s were of the same opinion and as a result, they have voted to increase the TV Licence fee by £3 to £142.50.

The Communication Regulation 2009 motion see 156 MP’s backing the motion to freeze the TV Licence fee, but 374 MP’s voted for the two per cent increase adding three pounds to the licence fee.

The motion should serve as warning to the BBC that should the conservatives win the next General Election it may not be getting such an easy ride and that there is a distinct possibility that there will be some top slicing of the TV Licence revenues in order to support Channel Four.
