Radio spectrum efficiency

Adam Afriyie (Windsor, Conservative): To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, what steps he has taken to encourage public sector users of the radio spectrum to share bands.

Mr Edward Vaizey (Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries): All public sector spectrum users are subject to Administered Incentive Pricing (AIP) which serves to encourage spectrum to be used efficiently or released to other uses. This charge is set by HM Treasury with advice from Ofcom and the DCMS.
