Regional news pilots could be scrapped by Tories

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Much has been made about the change in the way that regional news is to be delivered.

Currently there are three pilot schemes being run, in Scotland, Wales and in the Borders region of England.

News organisations are bidding for a contract that is worth millions of pounds, paid for by the TV Licence.

However it seems that the Conservatives are not too keen on the scheme and if elected may be inclined to cancel the arrangements and look for some other way of providing local news for all regions.

According to the shadow Arts Minister, Ed Vaizey, a Conservative government would be interested in building up a network of local news providers that get no public money at all.
