Legal Deposit Libraries (Consultation)

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

I would like to thank the Legal Deposit Advisory Panel (LDAP) for their recommendations on digital legal deposit and thank everyone who took the time to respond to the consultation.

My Department has received 57 responses to the consultation from a broad range of stakeholders. This shows how important digital legal deposit is. The consultation, as Members may have expected, has brought up many interesting and varying views and ideas on what the regulations should cover.

Since the close of the consultation, LDAP have provided me with their next set of recommendations on UK Commercial and Protected Online Publications.

I will now be considering all the responses we have received and LDAPs latest recommendations with a view to going out to consultation in September on draft regulations and on UK Commercial and Protected Online Publications content.
