The UK House of Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee has endorsed the appointment of Lord (Terry) Burns as the new Chair of Ofcom, the UK’s communications regulator, following a hearing before the DCMS members.

Burns, the Government’s preferred candidate for the role, will replace Dame Patricia Hodgson in January 2018. It is a four-year appointment with a three day per week time commitment.

Burns was Chairman of broadcaster Channel 4 between 2010 and 2016, and was previously Permanent Secretary at the Treasury.
