Default Public consultation on updating the "Television without Frontiers" Directive

The European Commission has launched a public consultation to help it to
assess whether there is a need to update or adapt the "Television without
Frontiers" Directive. In partiular, it invites contributions addressing the
following themes:
a.. Theme 1 : Access to events of major importance to society
b.. Theme 2 : Promotion of cultural diversity and of competitiveness of
the European programme industry
c.. Theme 3 : Protection of general interests in television advertising,
sponsorship, teleshopping and self-promotion
d.. Theme 4 : Protection of minors and public order - The right to reply
e.. Theme 5 : Application (related aspects)
f.. Theme 6 : Short extracts of events and other elements not covered by
the Directive
All interested parties are invited to participate in the public debate by
responding to the questions specified in the discussion papers and
transmitting their written contributions by 15 July 2003.

Full details of the practical arrangements, and hyperlinks to the relevant
documents, are available on-line at the URL:

Regards,

- Alan (in Brussels)

I'm amused that:
"As part of this public consultation exercise, there will two series of
public hearings organised in the Commission' premises in Brussels," [...wait
for it...] "to enable interested parties to contribute fully to the debate."

It's probably cheaper to go to Brussels via Eurostar from London than go
from "up north" via Virgin to lobby MP's in London.

So if the only Europeans who wished "to contribute fully to the debate" are
Londoners, all is well, then.

Well, Londoners are just about the only people that like being in the EU! The UK
gets screwed as usual, it seems.
