BBC World Service gets funding boost

By Will Henley

The UK’s Department for International Development (DfID) has reportedly agreed to give the BBC World Service Trust a £90m grant over five years.

The move follows the controversial decision by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in October 2010 to slash government funding for the World Service by 16 per cent, with the aim of ending funding completely by 2014.

International development secretary Andrew Mitchell said the media is “one of our most powerful tools”, according to comments reported by the BBC. “We want to give people knowledge and a voice,” he said.
