The ITC launched a major public consultation about the proposal to move News at Ten and even commissioned an opinion poll to canvass views. In the end, however, the ITC apparently gave more weight to the wishes of the ITV companies and their advertisers.
As one of those who took part in the public consultation exercise, I now feel I participated in a meaningless charade. I would question whether a determinedly non-interventionist ITC has any role to play in the future regulation of television.
