New Clause 1 - Power for operator to upgrade or share apparatus

Part of Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 9:25 am on 22 March 2022.

Alert me about debates like this

“(1) The electronic communications code is amended as follows.

(2) In paragraph 17, in sub-paragraph (1), for the words ‘sub-paragraphs (2) and (3)’ substitute ‘sub-paragraphs (2), (3) and (4A)’.

(3) After sub-paragraph (4) insert—

‘(4A) The third condition is that, where a site is provided by an emergency service, before the beginning of the period of 21 days, ending with the day on which the main operator begins to upgrade the electronic communications apparatus or (as the case may be) share its use, the main operator provides written notice to the site provider.’”—

This new clause would require operators with agreements under the code that are not subsisting agreements to provide written notice to site providers that are an emergency service before the beginning of the period of 21 days (with the 21 days ending the day the operator begins upgrading the apparatus).
