2008 Broadcasting Bill

RTÉ reports that the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources has published the 2008 Broadcasting Bill.

This new piece of legislation will see the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland take over the functions of the RTÉ Authority, the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland and the Broadcasting Complaints Commission

The legislation - which runs to well over 300 pages - is also expected to provide for a new, low cost and accessible method whereby members of the public can make complaints about broadcast material and it will allow for the setting up of a new Irish film channel and Oireachtas TV.
Those who want to read the document in its entirety can download it as a .pdf document from the government web site.
