‘(1) This section applies where OFCOM considers that there are reasonable grounds for believing that a provider of a regulated service has failed, or is failing, to comply with any enforceable requirement (see section 112) that applies in relation to the service.
(2) If OFCOM considers that the failure results from any—
(c) neglect, or
(d) with the consent’—(Dame Margaret Hodge.)

Question put, That the clause be added to the Bill.
