To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform whether he is considering measures to regulate the administration of UK internet domain names; and if he will make a statement. (242276)

The Government have no proposals in relation to Nominet. Officials in my Department have written to the company seeking clarification of how the present governance of the company reflects the wider stakeholder interest in Nominet's activities in regard to the management of Domain Name System. We understand that the company has commissioned an independent review in order to reply fully to that request. We look forward to the outcome of that review.
