asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) when the discussion document on open channel radio will be published;(2) how long he proposes to allow for public discussion on open channel radio after the publication of his discussion document.

We intend to publish the discussion document within the next few weeks, and we hope that there will be a wide and speedy response to it.

The document will specify a date by which comments should be submitted and final decisions about the introduction of open channel will be taken as soon as is consistent with the nature of the response and the other considerations to which I referred in my reply to a question from my hon. Friend on 7 May.
