FCS Briefing on Digital Economy Bill, Dec 2009

- FCS supports the Bill overall and encourages Parliament to scrutinise it fairly and
bring it into law
- The Bill recognises the utility nature of electronic communications; competition in
services and innovation will be driven by access to the networks; FCS supports
reporting on network access
- Ensure that the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure can have certain access to radio
spectrum by including a further clause in the bill
- Ofcom should report on itself on how it provides access to radio spectrum
