Government changes to digital radio policy to reflect local concerns.

Thanks for the email – I was monitoring yesterday's speech with interest!

I think it's fair to say we're pleased with the outcome – in particular that there was no "in principle" decision for switch-over and "emphatically no FM switch off". This allows time for the consumer demand to dictate how and when and even if a digital move will take place and it safeguards the long term future of FM.

I'm in no doubt that the movement of position in favour of the smaller commercial sector is down to the huge support we have received from our constituency MPs, so thank you to you and Graham for your support in this matter.

Wishing you both a peaceful Christmas and an exciting New Year

Best regards
