Joint BBC, ITV and Sky press statement

BBC, ITV and Sky have today written to the leaders of the Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties with a joint proposal for three live televised debates during the next general election campaign.

The individual broadcasters would be responsible for producing and broadcasting one debate each between all three party leaders.

Each of the three debates would be transmitted live by the originating broadcaster in peak time and made available to all other British broadcasters subsequently.

The broadcasters have formed a joint team to discuss detailed plans with the political parties.

Each of the broadcasters will seek to make suitable arrangements for ensuring due impartiality across the UK.
