Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how she plans the Ofcom Public Service Publisher service to be funded. (134465)

[holding answer 27 April 2007]: Ofcom published its discussion document into the potential role of the Public Service Publisher (PSP) in January and asked for comments by the end of March. At present they are reviewing those responses with a view to publishing a summary later in 2007.

While we believe the proposal for the PSP has stimulated a healthy debate it remains too early to make a wider Government response to the PSP proposal.
