ITV Border

EDM number 155 in 2007-08, proposed by Timothy Farron on 07/11/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Broadcasting and Employment.

That this House notes with concern the proposal from ITV to cease transmitting Border Television and replace it with programming from Tyne-Tees based in Gateshead; notes that the economy in Cumbria could suffer a loss of £8.7 million in Gross Value Added (GVA) by 2010 if the proposed cuts go ahead and 88 jobs are lost from the Carlisle-based news service and that the GVA impact in the county could climb to £10.7 million by 2015 and £13.1 million by 2020; and urges ITV to reconsider the proposal.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
