BBC director general Tony Hall said an outright ban of the Ding Dong record on Radio 1's chart show would have given the track more publicity:
I understand the concerns about this campaign. I personally believe it is distasteful and inappropriate. However, I do believe it would be wrong to ban the song outright as free speech is an important principle and a ban would only give it more publicity.
I have spoken at some length with the Director of Radio Graham Ellis and Radio 1 Controller Ben Cooper.
We have agreed that we won't be playing the song in full, rather treating it as a news story and playing a short extract to put it in context.
