Letter to the Commissioner for Public Appointments, William Shawcross

We have today sent a letter to William Shawcross CVO, the Commissioner for Public Appointments, expressing our concern at the way in which the government is handling the process of appointing the new chair of Ofcom.

This is a pivotal position, given Ofcom’s centrality to the whole communications sector and its imminent appointment as regulator in the sensitive and complex area of online safety. Given the powers that Ofcom will exercise over our digital and online world, this post is key to the nation’s future economy, society, politics and information security and should not be used to reward political favours.
