Digital Economy Bill

At least one ORG supporter has contacted this MP; extract of reply received:

"I was grateful to you for your detailed thoughts on the Digital Economy Bill which is currently being considered in the House of Lords.
The Bill received a Second Reading in the Lords on 2 December but is not scheduled to be considered by HofL Standing Committee until the next year. Members of Parliament will only consider the Bill when it has completed all stages in the Lords. I am aware of serious concerns over the content of the Bill and I shall be working with my colleagues on the Shadow Business, Innovation and Skills team on the detailed arguments. I shall ensure that your views are made known to them.
Meanwhile, I have taken the opportunity of alerting Lord Mandelson, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills to the representations you have put fowrard and I shall keep you advised of any reply I receive."
