BBC Claims No “Public Interest” In Early Release of Enforcement Investigation

The TV Licensing blog has reported that the BBC has rejected a Freedom of Information request to release a report into the behaviour of its licence investigators on the grounds that it was intended for future publication at time unknown.

The state-sponsored broadcaster said that “We do not consider that there is particular public interest in the early release of this information”.

The investigators are employed by Capita on behalf of the BBC. The broadcaster and Capita agreed to look into their behavour following a newspaper report they used underhand enforcement methods in order to earn large bonuses.
