I and my officials have received written representations and have met with representatives of all interested parties, including Freeview. Ofcom has undertaken a public consultation, which has recently closed, to seek opinions on how the Government's policy decisions regarding providing support to consumers affected by interference should be implemented.

It is the Government's belief, on the evidence available, that it will be possible to address any interference issues without unduly constraining the rollout of new mobile services or negatively impacting the availability of the digital terrestrial television service to the vast majority of viewers.
