Disappointment at CoMin's response to licence fee report

Thu, 19 Jan 2012

The three politicians who carried out the Tynwald inquiry into the TV Licence Fee have expressed disappointment at the Council of Minister's response to the report.

CoMin was asked to look into two of the recommendations of the original report and its findings went before Tynwald this week.

It had originally been recommended that the BBC should spend a further £1m or more on the Island each year.

However, the Council of Ministers thought that this wouldn't be realistic.

Graham Cregeen, Phil Gawne and David Callister all expressed elements of disappointment.

Mr Gawne said the BBC had been let off the hook.[Play media file below] 

Tynwald approved the findings of CoMin.
