Jowell confirms BBC licence fee settlement

Culture secretary Tessa Jowell has confirmed a six-year settlement for the BBC licence fee. As expected, the BBC will receive a 3% increase from licence fee revenues this year and in 2008, followed by 2% increases in 2009, 2010 and 2011. In 2012 the corporation will receive between zero and 2% extra, depending on the full costs of digital switchover.
