Motion text

That this House notes with deep concern the failure of Sky TV and digital broadcasters to show the BBC1 coverage of the Scottish Cup final, instead showing a typed message for three hours; and considers that in the age of digital switchover, where people are being encouraged to leave normal terrestrial broadcasting, the missing of the Cup Final, especially by children, should cause broadcasters, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and Ofcom to resolve this issue.
