JOURNALISTS AT BBC PARLIAMENT CHANNEL
EDM #304
Tabled 11 July 2016
2016-17 Session
That this House congratulates all those who are employed in producing content for the BBC Parliament Channel for doubling its viewing figures over recent years; appreciates the hard work that goes into providing live and recorded coverage of the parliaments and assemblies across the UK and the European Parliament, together with the production of a range of original programmes and curation of the BBC archive exploring parliament and politics; regrets that the commitment of the BBC journalists who have worked hard to achieve this success is not being properly recognised by BBC management; notes that staff with comparable editorial responsibilities on BBC News Channel or BBC World are categorised as Broadcast Journalists on Grade 7 of the staffing structure, whilst their equivalents working on BBC Parliament are counted as Broadcast Assistants on Grade 5; believes that staff at BBC Parliament deserve equal status and recognition as their counterparts producing equivalent output; and calls on BBC management to value the commitment of its staff by recognising their skills and re-grading them accordingly.
