(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order appoints 22nd June 2011 as the day on which the amendments made by section 29 of the Digital Economy Act 2010 (“the 2010 Act”) come into force. Section 29 amends the Broadcasting Act 1990 by repealing section 184. That section imposed an obligation on those broadcasters who provide Channel 3 services either the whole or the greater part (if Ofcom so determines) of which services are in Scotland. Section 29 of the 2010 Act removes the obligation on Ofcom to ensure that the membership of the Gaelic Media Service adequately represents the interests of holders of licences to provide such services.
The Order also appoints 22nd June as the day on which Section 45 of the 2010 Act comes into force for the purposes of the appropriate repeals in Schedule 2 of the 2010 Act.
