    Dear John,
    I am writing to ask if you would be willing to visit Seaford Court Homeless hostel in Wokingham for a question and answer session with the residents. I am a member of Wokingham Baptist church and lead a small group of volunteers who go to Seaford court on a Tuesday night to do activities with them. In addition from time to time we try to get some debate and discussion going on current issues to strengthen their awareness and critical reflection. I realise this is a bit of a long shot, but wondered if there was a Tuesday evening in the next few months when you might be free to join us for a couple of hours for a question and answer session. If it was possible I would be happy to collect questions the week before so you have a heads up as well as take other questions as they arise from the discussion.
    Many thanks
    Bill Crooks

    Reply Happy in principle to visit, but Tuesday evenings are usually Parliamentary working evenings at least until 7.30pm. Please send me your email to the Commons so we can try and arrange something.

    The withdrawal of free over 75’s TV licences means that the BBC has voted itself an extra half a billion pounds a year (their figures) without any oversight. This is a massive increase in their income, so why do they need it?
    The DG has the gall to say “this was a difficult decision”.
    He also claims that the public should have a say in future decisions. If in the future, why not for this decision?
    The BBC would never allow the public to have a say, so his words are meaningless.
