Harriet - Debate The Digital Economy Bill
Harriet Harman MP, Leader of the House of Commons, will – on Thursday afternoon – have to explain the Government’s plans for the Digital Economy Bill.

The Bill has suffered from huge manipulation by lobbyists, including insertion of entire new clauses at the behest of music lobbyists the BPI, and accusations that Lords amended the Bill without declaring their interests.

The Bill still includes highly controversial measures to disconnect families from the internet after allegations of copyright infringement. There are as yet unknown measures to block websites, with the potential for censorship. Such measures should not be rushed through during ‘wash up.

Harriet Harman, as Leader of the Commons has the power to recommend the Parliamentary timetable. That’s why we are asking for her to guarantee that the Bill receive full, line by line scrutiny. Nothing less will do. Take action now – email Harriet. It’ll take you less than 2 minutes.
