Volume 458: debated on Monday 12 March 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the Wifi spectrum is planned to be auctioned; and which parts of spectrum will be available. (123000)

I have been asked to reply.

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. Gentleman. Copies of the Chief Executive’s letter will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
