The IPA also called into questioned how the BBC is spending its money. It pointed in particularly to the investment of £200 million per annum that the corporation is spending on developing its digital television service.

The IPA also re-itterated its belief that there should be a single external economic regulator to cover all TV, including the BBC. This regulator -- which could be the Independent Television Commission -- should decide the BBC's public service remit and lay down specific, measurable and legally-binding programme obligations, the IPA said.

The BBC is currently self-regulating, while the ITC governs commercial broadcasters.
