Stephen Carter to prepare UK digital action plan

The new minister for communications, technology and broadcasting, Stephen Carter, is to create a wide-ranging “action plan” for the digital media economy that could include greater regulation for the internet.Former Ofcom chief executive and ex-Downing Street strategy director Carter will prepare a report, called Digital Britain, which will look at “a range of issues affecting internet users, such as user security and safety and a workable approach to promoting content standards”.The report will “consider what future legislative and non-legislative measures are required to support the development of these critical sectors,” according to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
