A draft report on a study on public and private broadcasters is now ready. The Commission of the European Communities commissioned this study from Putnam. Hayes & Bartlett Ltd. in London. The study deals with issues relating to the competition between public and private broadcasters, for example, the issue of revenues from the broadcasting of advertising by public broadcasters and the classification of the licence fee (is it State aid or not?).

The study will not be terminated before February 1995 and whether the study will be published has not yet been decided. IRIS will keep you informed.
