Radio Frequencies: Licensing

Volume 458: debated on Monday 12 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what estimate he has made of the (a) one-off and (b) recurring cost of implementing the Wireless Telegraphy (Licence Charges) (Amendment) Regulations 2000 to (i) businesses and (ii) the regulators. (125611)

The matter raised is the responsibility of the independent regulator, the Office of Communications (Ofcom), which is accountable to Parliament rather than Ministers. Accordingly, I have asked the Chief Executive of Ofcom to reply directly to the hon. Member. Copies of the Chief Executive’s letter will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
