STV and UTV, the two UK regional franchise holders of ITV licences, have told Ofcom, the British broadcast regulator, that they wanted nothing to do with a single nationwide licence for Channel 3 in the UK.

The idea was floated by Michael Grade, executive chairman of ITV, in recent remarks at a Royal Television Society. Rob Woodward, chief executive of STV, which owns the Scottish and Grampian franchises, told the Financial Times: "The idea of a single ITV at a time of Scottish devolution seems to run completely counter to both political and social trends in this country."
