UK Communications Green Paper abandoned

The National Union of Journalists reports that UK Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, has shelved his potentially controversial communications Green Paper until after the Olympics.  According to Ian Burrell of the Independent:

The document had the potential to draw further accusations of bias, as it would have dealt with contentious issues such as the future of public service broadcasting, the handling of internet piracy and the allocation of broadcasting spectrum.

It will be replaced by a series of five half-day seminars between July and September, intended to encourage investment and competition.
