British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson is pushing ahead with proposals to decriminalise individuals, who refuse to pay the BBC licence fee.

Outgoing culture secretary, Nicky Morgan is set to launch a public consultation on whether it is a criminal offence not to pay for the annual television licence.

Incidentally, it was only this week that it was confirmed that the annual TV licence fee will increase from £154.50 to £157.50, from 1st April.

Prior to the General Election in December, Johnson said he was considering abolishing the licence fee altogether. The existing BBC charter expires on 31st December 2027.
