Hunt Issues Ideas Invite towards New Communications Bill

The Westminster Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, has used the video-sharing website, YouTube, to invite ideas towards proposed new legislation involving the digital and creative industries, including regulation.

A new Communications Bill is to be steered through parliament, says Hunt, during the second half of the Coalition Government's current term in office and ideas are being sought ahead of a consultation document being issued before Christmas.

On the agenda is, among other things, de-regulation and copyright protection.

Responses require to be submitted by the 30th of next month.
