Broadband: West Yorkshire

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (1) how many households have access to broadband in (a) Leeds West constituency, (b) Leeds Metropolitan area and (c) West Yorkshire; (255470)

(2) what estimate his Department has made of the number of households with (a) a computer and (b) access to broadband in Leeds West constituency.

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 right hon. Friend. Copies of the chief executive's letter will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
