Brexit: BBC could move base to Brussels

Belgian officials are lobbying for a BBC move to Brussels after Brexit, the director-general has revealed.

Lord Tony Hall said there were also efforts to set up a base for the broadcaster in Amsterdam dependent on the outcome of Brexit negotiations.

The director-general said it would be a means to maintain channels on the continent, which would require licences in the European Union to continue being broadcast.

Lord Hall said he hoped BBC operations can all remain in the UK and no decision had been made ahead of the Brexit deadline of 29 March.

He also said any BBC presence across the Channel would be minimal and constitute just a “handful” of staff.
