NAO Report: E20 renewing the EastEnders set

Chairs comment:

The Committee Chair, Meg Hillier MP, comments:

β€œIt is concerning that the BBC has been unable to keep to budget and time on this project again, given my Committee had already heard about the need to revise its scope in 2016.

β€œIt is critical, given the BBC's funding pressures, that every pound of licence fee payers' money is spent effectively.”
