No decisions have been made over a potential Charter Review of the BBC, a spokesman for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport has said, after the new Culture Secretary said the organisation faces a review of "everything".
Sajid Javid said plans for the process of renewing the charter, which expires in December 2016, were being worked on.
A spokesman said: "No decisions have been made as to the content of the Charter Review. All aspects of the BBC could be within scope but no decisions will be made until the Charter Review process begins".
