I can pay so I will pay my TV licence fee



Your article “BBC: No to chasing the elderly” suggests there may be a considerab­le number of over-75s who are not paying licence fees.

I don’t begrudge the fee for the service provided and coverage of many interestin­g subjects but feel frustrated that many others who can afford to pay do not.

Essentiall­y, I would suggest those who can pay should. If the non-payers in the over-75 age range are being publicly advised that they will not be prosecuted what incentive is there to keep paying, other than doing the right thing? The pandemic has perhaps brought this issue to the fore but some clear management is required by the BBC before matters become too complicate­d.
