DODGING TV LICENCE TO BE DECRIMINALISED

It will no longer be a criminal offence to refuse to pay the TV license fee, under plans currently being considered by Ministers. Currently, anyone failing to pay the licence fee who watches live television at home faces a fine of up to £1,000 together with a criminal record. Those who fail to pay any fines given by a Magistrates Court ultimately face the possibility of a custodial sentence.
