A date for your diary. The TV Licence will be debated in Parliament on Monday 16 October, and it is being sponsored by an unlikely MP - Helen Jones. She is the Labour MP for Warrington North. The debate is a result of an e-petition which attracted 125,958 signatures before it was closed as a result of this year's general election.
The petition says that "the TV licence should be abolished, removed and not a legal requirement. It should be included through your provider for free. TV is expensive enough without the added extra worry of £130+ a year."
One to watch after the party conference season, and you can watch it live on parliamentlive.tv
