Guernsey TV and radio laws may be clarified

Anomalies in Guernsey's television and radio laws have been caused by UK authorities failing to communicate, the Home Department has said.

It made the comment in a report asking the States to approve "remedial legislation" to retrospectively cover changes made in the UK since 2003.

The current laws leave uncertainty over issues such as TV licensing and the power of the regulator Ofcom.

The report is due to go before the States in March.

The department said as part of the process of preparing the legislation it has contacted the relevant UK authorities to ensure all future legislation will be passed on to Guernsey.
