Digital Economy Bill — New functions of Channel 4 — requires special annual report — 3 Feb 2010 at 18:41

The majority of Lords voted against reducing the reporting mechanism imposed on Channel 4 over its new functions.

The new functions were to:[1]

  • make a broad range of high quality media content that appeals to the tastes and interests of a culturally diverse society, including films intended to be shown in the cinema
  • distribute the media content through a range of different types of electronic communications networks
  • promote measures intended to secure that people are well-informed and motivated to participate in society in a variety of ways
  • support the development of people with creative talent at the beginning of their careers or involved in the making of innovative content

The following clause required them to produce an annual statement monitoring its performance against these new functions[2]

The change, which was voted on and rejected, was to minimize this reporting mechanism by requiring them to simply publish it in its annual report.[3]
