Radio Frequencies

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 15 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps Ofcom is taking to remove radio interference affecting short wave users, with particular reference to that caused by (a) general powerline adaptors and (b) powerline adaptors provided by BT as part of their Vision system; and if he will make a statement.

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