HC Deb 13 December 1999 vol 341 c39W
Mr. Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will make a statement on his plans to review the law prohibiting religious organisations from holding national radio broadcasting licences. [102215]

Janet Anderson

We are considering the introduction of early broadcasting and communications legislation to ensure that a regulatory framework is in place which recognises the developments across those industries. The ownership of radio licences for religious broadcasting will be one of the issues for consideration in that context.
