§ The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (Tessa Jowell)
I have today placed copies of the independent review of BBC News 24 by Richard Lambert in the Libraries of both Houses, together with a letter to Gavyn Davies setting out my response.
In response to the review, I have attached two further conditions to the approvals of BBC News 24. These require the Governors to publish their response to the Lambert report by the end of March 2003, and to 84WS promulgate revised commitments for the service, taking account of Richard Lambert's recommendations, by the end of May 2003.
A website version of the review can be found on the DCMS website at www.culture.gov.uk www.culture.gov.uk
