The Review into TV Licence Enforcement was announced on the 9th September 2014 and was led by Independent Reviewer, David Perry QC. The Review was established to consider whether the sanctions currently in place for failure to hold a TV licence are appropriate and fair, and whether the current regime represents value for money for licence fee payers and taxpayers. The Review identified and assessed options for amending the current enforcement regime, including those for decriminalisation of TV licence evasion offences, and whether these options would represent an improvement, based on the key considerations set out in the Terms of Reference.
This consultation set out a number of options and invited evidence and views on each.
