Digital Britain : final report by Great Britain( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this document the Government sets out a programme of action designed to position the UK as a long-term leader in communications, creating an industrial framework that will fully harness digital technology. The UK's digital dividend will transform the way business operates, enhance the delivery of public services, stimulate communications infrastructure ready for next-generation distribution and preserve Britain's status as a global hub for media and entertainment. This approach seeks to maximise the digital opportunities for all citizens. The report contains: (1) an analysis of the levels of digital participation, skills and access needed for the digital future, with a plan for increasing participation, and more coherent public structures to deal with it; (2) an analysis of communications infrastructure capabilities; (3) plans for the future growth of creative industries, proposals for a legal and regulatory framework for intellectual property and proposals on skills and investment support and innovation; (4) a restatement of the need for specific market intervention in the UK content market, with implications and challenges for the BBC and C4 Corporation and other forms of independent and suitably funded news; (5) an analysis of the skills, research and training markets, and what supply side issues need addressing for a fully functioning digital economy; (6) a framework for digital security and digital safety at international and national levels and recognition that a world of high speed connectivity needs a digital framework not an analogue one; (7) a review of what all of this means for the Government and how digital governance in the information age demands new structures, new safeguards, and new data management, access and transparency rules

Report on the affairs of Phoenix Venture Holdings Limited, MG Rover Group Limited and 33 other companies by Gervase MacGregor( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MG Rover Group Limited (MGRG) went into administration on 8 April 2005. On 31 May 2005 inspectors were appointed by the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to investigate the affairs of Phoenix Venture Holdings (MGRG's ultimate parent company), MGRG, 32 other companies in the Group and MGR Capital Limited. This report addresses the period between the acquisition of MGRG by Techtronic Limited in 2000 and MGRG's entry into administration in 2005. It pays particular reference to the events leading up to the appointment of administrators of MGRG in April 2005 and the matters raised in a review of financial statements by the Financial Reporting Review Council (the FRRP review is included in the report as an exhibit). The inspectors criticise the unreasonably large financial awards to the four members of the Phoenix Consortium and the chief executive of MGRG. This report has been informed by documentary and computer evidence from numerous sources, including data from the Group's Longbridge site and national sales companies. 95 individuals were interviewed formally and 20 witness statements provided; all of these responses have been considered in this report

A competition regime for growth : a consultation on options for reform by Great Britain( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report sets out proposals to create a single Competition and Markets Authority by merging the competition functions of the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) with the Competition Commission (CC). The proposals to strengthen and streamline the competition regime will boost the existing arrangement in a number of ways. This includes reducing the duplication of costs for business, and increasing industry confidence in the system. The Government wants to stimulate growth by allowing the market to be dynamic and competitive. Ministers also want to empower small and medium businesses by giving them greater support in the system. Proposals include: creating a single, powerful advocate for competition with The Competition and Markets Authority; increasing business confidence through faster decision making, ending duplication, and more predictability of competition processes and decisions; reducing barriers to entry by making it easier for the competition authority to tackle anti-competitive mergers; and reform anti-trust provisions to increase deterrence of anti-competitive and abusive behaviour; delivering faster results for consumers, with shorter end-to-end studies and investigations into markets where lack of competition is giving consumers a bad deal; reducing the SME burden, introducing an exemption for small mergers from the merger control regime; giving small business a voice: an extended supercomplaints process to spotlight market features that harm small companies

National minimum wage : Low Pay Commission report 2010 by Great Britain( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Low Pay Commission was again asked to monitor and evaluate the impact of the minimum wage and to consider its effect on different groups of workers. Additionally the Commission considers the detailed arrangements for an apprentice minimum wage. Data limitations prevent assessment of the 2009 minimum wage upratings, but the report finds that the 2008 upratings continue to have a significant influence on wages at the bottom of the earnings distribution. The numbers paid at the adult minimum wage rose to nearly 750,000 (3.2 per cent of all adult jobs) in April 2009. This year it has been difficult to separate out any potential impact of the minimum wage from that of the recession more generally. The low-paying industries experienced a smaller proportional fall in jobs than across the economy as a whole, but small firms suffered more than larger organisations. All workers in low-paying sectors remain vulnerable. The Commission pays particular attention to young people, who have experienced greater hardship in the employment market. The Commission's recommendations for October 2010 are: adult minimum wage to increase from £5.80 to £5.93; youth development rate to increase from £4.83 to £4.92; 16-17 year old rate to increase from £3.57 to £3.64; apprentice rate for all employed apprentices currently exempt from the national minimum wage to be set at £2.50
