Evidence-free assertions by Ed Vaizey to Parliament on Digital Economy: 22 March 2016

Oral evidence - The Digital Economy - 22 Mar 2016: "I cannot necessarily give you specific examples of where we have been successful, although in the past, for example, we introduced a code of conduct for net neutrality that was very successful.


I have said for many years, as a mindset and a matter of principle, that self-regulation in this area is a profitable route for two reasons, and they are linked. One is that the landscape moves so quickly that by the time you have gone through the rigmarole of formal regulation, consultation and so on, which can be very time-consuming, you could well be out of date. Secondly, if you work with the technology providers, you set yourself the goal of the outcome you want to see and you can reach conclusions very quickly. That is a good thing." 'via Blog this'
