On the debate, Julie said:

 

"We expect a lot from the BBC, both as License Fee payers and as viewers. We expect BBC output to be high quality, original, innovative, challenging, engaging, trustworthy, for it to reflect the diverse British experience and for it to be widely available.

I believe that each region has the right to see itself represented by the national broadcaster. At present, the BBC falls short on this commitment, and I look forward to working further with them, both as a constituency MP and on the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee, in order to ensure that this commitment is met.
