Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how many households have discontinued their fixed line telephone connection in each of the last 12 months. (294752)

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.
