  • Dame Patricia Hodgson, Chair, Ofcom


Dame Patricia Hodgson was appointed Chairman of Ofcom for a three year term from April 2014.

Questions she will face include:

  • What plans have you to help those who are ‘digitally disadvantaged’?
  • Could you tell us something about the work you are doing as a convenor?
