Dear Mr McNulty

Reference CAS-2832936-Y1CMD4

Thanks for contacting us regarding ‘BBC News at Six’ on BBC One.

We note you felt we didn’t give equivalent due prominence and weight to two reports on our 22 July and 24 July programmes.

You of course kindly provided the transmission dates of 22 and 24 July. However, having reviewed both programmes only the 24 July programme contains the report you refer to. The fourth story on 22 July’s programme was the London summit on Female Genital Mutilation. There is no report on ONS figures in this edition of the programme. We’d therefore seek your clarification on the date you saw the initial report you refer to.

We’d add that due to the prohibitive costs of providing such a service, video, audio and transcripts for ‘BBC News at Six’ are not available.

Thanks again for contacting us.

Kind Regards

Lucia Fortucci
