Further to this morning's story in the Times,shadow culture secretary Jeremy Hunt has told the press that a future Tory government would not change the BBC until 2016.

Although there are

“some merits in having OFCOM regulate the BBC”, the Tories would “stick with the BBC charter until 2016

After this, he added

they would want to “give people who pay for the BBC an independent body that they complain to if they’re unhappy with the way the money is being spent.”
