Commissioner's statement on the draft BBC Charter (15 September 2016)

“I welcome the commitment in the draft Charter that the appointment of the Chair and the nation members of the Board will be made through fair and open competition following the public appointment principles. I also welcome the fact that the Commissioner for Public Appointments will ensure that appointments are in accordance with the Government’s forthcoming Governance Code. I look forward to working with the Secretary of State and the BBC on the forthcoming appointments in order to make clear publicly that the decisions have been made on merit to select people with the relevant skills and experience.”
