Broadband: Easington

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 4 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform which villages in the Easington constituency do not have 100 per cent. broadband coverage; and if he will make a statement. (188831)

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 my hon. Friend. Copies of the chief executive’s letter will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
