The BBC Licence Fee has been frozen for two years.
The announcement by the Secretary of State for Culture was welcomed by local MP, Alec Shelbrooke, who told the House of Commons the freeze would help households in Elmet & Rothwell who are experiencing rising costs.
Alec has previously spoken of the important role BBC services, such as BBC World Service, play globally.
He has also been critical of highly-paid BBC "stars", such as Gary Lineker, who have been accused of using their position to promote political activism, which calls into question the BBC's impartiality. Mr Lineker, who has spoken against the Government's decision to freeze the BBC Licence Fee for hard-pressed families, was paid £1.3 million by the BBC in 2021.
In the House of Commons, Alec urged the Secretary of State to consider the vital role of radio in forthcoming reviews of the BBC's funding model.
