The BBC is to undergo an independent review into how it’s governed and regulated, the UK Government announced today (Wednesday, September 16).
It will be carefully assessed by an independent team led by former chairman of Virgin Money Sir David Clementi, who was previously a deputy governor of the Bank of England, as part of the ongoing review of its Royal Charter to make sure it remains a valued public broadcaster.
Clementi has been asked to make proposals in relation to the following:
the model of governance and regulation of the BBC;
the specific mechanisms of governance and regulation; and
the way in which the BBC and the bodies that govern and regulate it engage with licence fee payers and industry.
