Over 75s Free licence
Nov 1st, 2018, 11:17am
The BBC asked "Frontier Economics" to report on the future funding of the over 75's "free" TV licence.

It may be downloaded here in pdf format.

A BBC spokesperson said: “We are grateful to Frontier Economics for their full report. It is clearly the result of careful study and analysis. It will help inform the BBC’s consultation on the future of the over 75s concession once government stops funding it in 2020. There are important issues to consider and we will do nothing without consulting with the public. We will be setting out a range of options in our consultation paper. Everyone who wants to contribute will be able to do so once the consultation is published.”

So--it's abolished.Big own goal.
What happens if senior citizens over 75 refuse or accidentally forget  to pay it?
I can just see the headlines in the tabloid press as oldies are frogmarched down the cop shop for a dressing down!
