No, this isn't the fault of HM Government, it's the latest phishing attempt.
If you receive an email, purportedly coming from the TV Licensing, please be careful. It may be a scam.
The email informs you that your direct debit has been rejected by your bank and asks you to click on a link to update your payment details, with the threat that failure to do so you will cause you to 'lose service'. The email finishes with the threatening but comical statement 'We will see you soon'.
The symptoms of the note are that the email uses US date formats and appalling grammar.
Please delete the email and check out the status of your TV license here if you are in any doubt.
