Deputy Seán Power Deputy Seán Power
Deputy Seán Power: I am not aware of calls for an increase in the television licence fee. In the past, any increase in the television licence fee has been linked to RTÉ’s performance against its published commitments. As the Minister mentioned in the House last month, the Department is currently reviewing RTÉ’s 2007 performance and the 2008 performance review will began shortly. The outcomes of these reviews will help inform any decision in relation to the licence fee.
