The communications minister Lord Stephen Carter is to leave his job after this week’s Digital Britain report is published. It is being reported that Carter will leave the government by the end of next month to return to the private sector.
Carter has been in the role 18 months after a fraught spell as Downing St chief of staff. His departure will increase speculation that he is in the running for ITV chief executive. He is a former CEO of Telewest, one of the predecessors to Virgin Media.
