Motion text

That this House notes the increasing take-up of digital terrestial television through Freeview; considers that the proceedings of Parliament and other assemblies in the UK should, in the interest of furthering greater involvement in the democratic process, be available to as many people as possible; further notes with regret that BBC Parliament is currently broadcast on Freeview in a quarter screen format using a shared channel decoded by an MHEG which not all decoders can handle; and therefore urges the Government to ensure that BBC Parliament is given its own full bandwith, full screen channel on Freeview at the earliest possible date.
