Digital Economy Bill — Limit the powers of the manager appointed to save a failed internet domain registry — rejected — 3 Feb 2010 at 17:24

The majority of Lords voted against limiting the the powers of a manager appointed by the government to take control of an internet domain registry following a serious failure and a notice period.

A serious failure is when the registry engages in unfair practices or misuses internet domain names in a way that adversely affects the reputation or availability of electronic communications, or interests of consumers.[1]

The addition to this law, which was rejected, was to require the Secretary of State to outline the appropriate steps the manager must take to remedy the failure of the internet domain register he has been appointed to manage.

According to Lord Howard, without this extra provision, the manager will be able to "involve himself in matters which are not related to the task for which he was appointed to carry out."
