1. The Committee on Culture, Science, Education and
Media, together with its rapporteur for opinion who had tabled the
motion for a recommendation on the “Revision of the European Convention
on Transfrontier Television” in 2011 (Doc. 12752), strongly welcome the report by Mr James Clappison
on behalf of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights.
2. The report is very timely for at least two reasons: it comes
at a moment when broadcasting is technically converging even further
with digital online media, and the Parliament and Commission of
the European Union will be reshuffled following the parliamentary
elections in May 2014.
