BERR on Friday issued a statement to say that the Digital Britain Final Report will not now be released on Tuesday as planned. Instead it is being presented to the Cabinet tomorrow and will be released later in the week.
There is also a meeting between Lord Carter and a few industry representatives tomorrow afternoon. ISPA is being represented at that meeting so I will report back later.
There is a huge amount of expectation surrounding the publication of the Digital Britain report. We think we know what is going to be in it but can’t be sure. However it turns out I’m sure it is going to spark a huge amount of debate. Let’s enjoy the last few days of peace before it hits the street 🙂
Note the BERR statement isn’t actually a BERR statement. It is a Joint statement from Departments for Business, Innovation and Skills and Culture Media and Sport. I’m not politicaslly motivated but this does seem ridiculous. BISCMS ?!!! I could only just get my tongue around BERRRRRR.
Hot off the press – apparently the report will now be available on the DCMS website at 3.30 pm tomorrow.
