Questions in the House

Events yesterday conspired to see the irrepressible Austin Mitchell leap out of the hat in the lottery to ask questions of the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport James Purnell. Other MPs got stuck in too - read the full report here. Purnell, one of the prime architects of Ofcom, confirmed that 'This House made it very clear through the Communications Act 2003 that it expected regional television to be right at the heart of what ITV does... '
ITV and Ofcom should heed the advice given by Mr Purnell to 'take into account the strong feelings expressed about (the plans) in this House.'
