Two new governmental organisations, one supervisory council on programme content and one agency for licensing new radio (and television) stations, have been set up on 1 July 1994.

Reports and proposals on the following subjects have been sent out for consultations and will be considered by the Government during this year: * A new comprehensive legislation: radio and television ( SOU 1994:105); * The future of public service radio and television ( Ds 1994:76); * A fourth terrestrial television channel ( Ds 1994:105); * A report: applied mass media research ( SOU 1994:146).

Furthermore two reports have been published by the Press commission relating to the overall media situation ( SOU 1994: 94, an expert report on the daily press in the media landscape of the 1990s; and SOU 1994:145, containing five contributions on media concentration).
