12. Mr. Leigh

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans her Department has for BBC finances. [43153]

I have no plans to change the current financing arrangements for the BBC, but funding will be looked at as part of the process of reviewing the BBC's Charter, which expires in 2006.
