Motion text

That this House notes that the Jewish community is the only significant minority in London without a dedicated community radio station; congratulates Shalom FM on completing its fourth one month restricted service licence in November 2006; notes that Shalom FM surpassed expectations and was enjoyed and appreciated by all sectors of the Jewish community; regrets that Shalom FM continues to encounter problems with OFCOM in an application for a community licence for a permanent service; notes that there will be no further applications considered for a community licence covering London and the South East until at least the end of 2007, meaning that no licence would be granted until well into 2008; and calls upon the Government to do all it can to speed up the process to ensure that the Jewish community has access to a radio station serving its needs as soon as possible.
