government response details
The Royal Charter is the constitutional basis for the BBC which guarantees the BBC’s existence and independence, and provides the framework for how the BBC is governed and funded. The Charter sets the BBC’s Mission and Public Purposes which set out what the BBC’s responsibilities are and what it must do. The licence fee model contained in the Charter provides the funding for the BBC.The current Charter was agreed between the BBC and the government in 2017, and lasts to the end of 2027. At the time the government consulted widely on the BBC and how it should be funded, and found support for both the corporation and for the current licence fee model.As a result, the government will maintain the current BBC funding model until 2027. The government believes there is still a strong and enduring rationale for the BBC continuing as the nation's broadcaster. The BBC, as part of a wider public service broadcasting system, plays an important role in providing distinctive content for all UK audiences.Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport
