To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, if he will make it his policy to propose to the BBC, as part of the forthcoming negotiations on renewal of its Royal Charter, that under a renewed Charter the BBC should be required to demonstrate more transparency about fees, expenses and salaries paid to all staff or employees of the Corporation who earn more than £100,000 per annum.

Further to the answer I gave the hon. Member for East Londonderry on 12 May, Official Report, col 305W, there are no current plans to make such proposals. The Government has said that the right time to consider all aspects of the BBC is the Charter Review; this will not be starting in advance of the Election in 2015.
