The Secretary of State for Culture John Whittingdale announced the review of the BBC Charter. Ian Twinn ISBA's head of public affairs, said:
“Advertisers will take a very close interest in the review announced by John Whittingdale. Most of us as individuals will have a fondness for ‘Auntie’ balanced by the occasional flashes of irritation.
What worries us is that the BBC takes a compulsory levy on all households and uses this, perhaps unintentionally, to undermine other media outlets. The Review and the panel have come under sustained attack form those with a vested interest in maintaining a high spending BBC. We however welcome a review from people with an affection for the BBC but who are not wearing rose coloured spectacles"
