Lords quiz outgoing Chair of Ofcom

28 February 2014


On Tuesday 4 March, the House of Lords Communications Committee will hold a one-off evidence session with the outgoing Chair of Ofcom, Dame Colette Bowe.  

Dame Colette Bowe was appointed Ofcom Chairman in March 2009. In July 2013 she announced her intention to step down at the end of her five year term.

The Committee will invite Dame Colette Bowe to reflect on the changes in the communications sector during her period as Chair, as well as exploring the implications of these changes for regulation, the role of Ofcom, its independence and Government policy on the media more widely.

The evidence session will take place on Tuesday 4 March at 4.30pm in Committee Room 2 of the House of Lords.

The session will be webcast at www.parliamentlive.tv and is also open to the public. Journalists wishing to attend should go to Parliament’s Cromwell Green Entrance and should allow time for security screening.
