Snippet Contents:

As I have outlined to the Deputy in a previous response, my Department has conducted a Value for Money Policy Review on the proposed introduction of a Public Service Broadcasting Charge. This Report was submitted to me recently and I am giving due consideration to the Report and its recommendations.
The replacement of the existing funding system based on the collection of television licence fees with one based on the imposition of device-independent charge on eligible households and businesses is a complex process and the logistics involved require thorough attention. Issues such as identifying those liable for the charge, together with the most appropriate collection method, exemptions and enforcement mechanics require detailed consideration and have a bearing on projected revenue.
Moreover, decisions in respect of the level of the charge have not yet been made. I am unable, therefore, to provide an estimate of potential revenue at this stage in the process. That said, the proposed new arrangements must, at a minimum, be capable of sustaining existing funding levels.
