To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills pursuant to the answer of 28 October 2010, Official Report, column 458W, on public expenditure, who is undertaking the work to identify spectrum suitable for release; and what representations he has received on the proposed release of public sector spectrum.

Work to create an appropriate governance structure to manage the process of release and an implementation timetable is currently under way, led by the Shareholder Executive and the Treasury. Once this is approved by Ministers, expected to be no later than March 2011, we will be able to give more detail on how the work to identify spectrum will be taken forward.

Current discussions involve the relevant Departments, particularly MOD and Ofcom. To date I have received no representations from outside Government.
