Lords Committee hears perspectives from economists about the BBC’s purpose
The Communications and Digital Committee continues its inquiry into BBC future funding in a session with Ryan Bourne and Dr Cento Veljanovski.
Possible questions and areas for discussion with witnesses include:
- In your view, what should be the purpose of a national broadcaster? Is the notion of a national broadcaster still justifiable?
- How should the BBC be funded in future?
- What do the BBC and government need to do to ensure the Corporation is viewed as legitimate in future?
