TV licence may be cut - Jeremy Hunt

The television licence fee could be cut under the government's public spending austerity drive, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Mr Hunt attacked the BBC's "extraordinary and outrageous" waste.

He said he could "absolutely" see viewers paying less than the current £145.50 after next year's negotiations between the BBC and the government.
