Naga Munchetty: BBC Breakfast host passionately defends BBC licence fee 'It's worth it'

Speaking out on the BBC’s decision, Oliver Dowden said: “I very much regret the decision that the BBC has taken. We gave the settlement to the BBC back in 2015. 

“They said that it was a good settlement, and I regret that they couldn’t find efficiency savings in order to avoid having to impose the licence fee on the over-75 in the way that they have set out.

I feel let down that the BBC haven’t funded this. I’m sure people up and down the country will feel let down that they haven’t funded it.

“Our manifesto said we thought that they should fund it, I’ve made that position clear to the BBC and I’ve not changed my mind on that.”

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
