To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, with reference to paragraph 1.117 of the Autumn Statement 2014, what discussions he has had with representatives of the Programme Making and Special Event sector on the consequences for their work and the wavelengths they use of the further clearance of spectrum for mobile use.

As set out in the National Infrastructure Plan and Autumn Statement, further details of the change of use of 700MHz spectrum will be set out in 2015. As part of that process, Ofcom are currently carrying out work to find suitable alternative spectrum for PMSE. We would encourage the PMSE community to engage in that process.
