RTE Response to Forum on Broadcasting
28 Mar 2002 :
Director-General of RTE, Bob Collins, responds to the announcement, by the Minister for Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands, Síle de Valera, of the membership and terms of reference.

The Director-General of RTÉ, Bob Collins, has issued the following statement in response to Minister Sile de Valera's announcement of the membership and terms of reference of the Forum on Broadcasting.

"As Director-General of RTÉ I welcome the composition of the Forum on Broadcasting announced by Minister de Valera this afternoon. The terms of reference clarify the challenging remit the Chair and members of the Forum must address. I particularly welcome the Minister's decision to highlight that the Forum must take regard of the need to ensure plurality of provision, diversity of choice and impartial and independent journalism - all in the context of emerging technological and commercial trends. RTÉ looks forward to contributing to, and supporting in appropriate ways, the public debate on broadcasting that will be generated by the Forum's work."

The varied experiences and expertise of the members of the Forum will ensure that the complexity of issues and viewpoints identified in submissions to it can be comprehensively and fairly addressed. We are confident that the recommendations from the Forum will reflect RTÉ's belief that Ireland, and Irish people, want and deserve a secure public sector broadcasting service that reflects our unique culture and tradition.
