The BBC spent close to £12m on taxis in 2013-4, up from £10.7m in 2011-2.

In a now-familiar piece of sophistry, it refuses to break down details of the spend in News, TV and Radio, because that's information held for the purposes of "journalism, art or literature".

This may offend BBC Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, who have had more details disclosed, along with The Trust, Finance & Operations and Strategy & Digital. They accounted for £1.7m of taxi fares during 2013-4. Charges for waiting time were added to 16% of journeys, and 1.6% were cancelled, incurring payments.
