With a question mark hanging over the future of the licence fee and how this money is to be spent, it is amazing to find that the BBC has been stockpiling thousands of doses of the anti flu drug, Tamiflu.
The broadcaster has used licence fee money to purchase over four thousand doses of the drug for staff members that may be at risk from the virus.
Naturally this has raised questions in various quarters.
According to the Scottish public health spokesperson, Jackson Carlaw, this is a disgrace because the BBC is funded by the public, yet these funds have been used to buy a product that would ordinarily be available free on the NHS.
Once again, the question of what the BBC do with the licence money is being brought to the attention of all.
