Joint Committee On Human Rights First Report



4. LETTER FROM RT HON TESSA JOWELL, SECRETARY OF STATE, DEPARTMENT FOR CULTURE, MEDIA AND SPORT AND RT HON PATRICIA HEWITT MP, SECRETARY OF STATE, DEPARTMENT OF TRADE AND INDUSTRY

COMMUNICATIONS BILL

We very much welcome the Joint Committee's report on the draft Communications Bill, which was published as the Committee's Nineteenth Report on 19 July.

Following the pre-legislative scrutiny process and our separate public consultation we have made revisions to our draft Bill, which we introduced into Parliament on 19 November.

We hope that the attached Memorandum, which provides our response to each of the Committee's recommendations, will give a helpful indication of our reaction to the Committee's report.

22 November 2002
