Have your say

The Trust makes decisions about the future of the BBC in the best interests of the licence fee payer. As part of this, we regularly hold open consultations on subjects we are considering. These are usually related to a BBC service, although they can also be on other matters such policy statements about how the BBC operates. These consultations normally take the form of a questionnaire which allows us to ask the public specific questions before we take a decision. All submissions will be taken into account.
