The answer is no

Lord Stoddart of Swindon put down a Written Question about the BBC:
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether, in the light of the Pollard report, they have any plans to withdraw the BBC's Royal Charter when it is next due for renewal.
To which HMG in the shape of Lord Gardiner of Kindle replied:
The current BBC Charter expires on 31 December 2016. It remains the Government's position that a Royal Charter is the right vehicle for the BBC, which is established for many good reasons, at arm's-length from politicians.
That will be a no, then.
