Lord Hall 'refutes and resents' claims BBC not honouring deal in TV licences row

The director general of the BBC has said he “refutes and resents” the idea the corporation is not honouring its agreement with the Government over free TV licences for the over-75s. From June next year, the benefit will be restricted to over-75s who claim pension credit, with the BBC saying it cannot afford to take on the full financial burden from the Government.
