To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what assessment she has made of the potential benefit to consumers in the communications sector of the Government's proposals to streamline regulatory and competition appeals.

I believe that streamlining the framework for regulatory and competition appeals offers benefits for consumers and industry. The Government published an impact assessment alongside its consultation on proposals to streamline regulatory appeals and this is available at:

This assessment is being updated in light of consultation responses received and we will publish that alongside the Government’s response to the consultation in the spring.
