Government to establish a single regulatory body to cover both

commercial television and the BBC.



Concern has been mounting that commercial broadcasters are more heavily

regulated than the BBC at a time when the corporation itself is taking

advantage of commercial opportunities through its BBC Worldwide division

and is straying from its own programming remit.



The IPA is keen to protect advertisers’ interests with its submission to

the Parliamentary all-party media select committee, in which it also

moots the creation of a single regulator for all media.



The committee is canvassing industry views on how digital TV and

convergence will affect the regulation of broadcasting.
