Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what assessment he has made of (a) the impact of the digital dividend review on (i) wireless microphones and (ii) in-ear monitors on completion of digital switchover and (b) the potential to encourage licensed usage. (193912)

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 both Houses.
