• Hand over responsibility for managing press complaints to OFCOM.
     
  • Dissolve the existing commission's policy of self-regulation with the change, and replace it with independent figures.
     
  • As OFCOM has statutory powers, ensure that those handling the role of the PCC within OFCOM will be able to impose fines on publications when they are in breach of the code.

Why is this idea important?

  • Efficiency savings.
     
  • Improve the effectiveness with which Press Complaints should be handled. The PCC is known to have investigated less than 3% of all complaints made to it.
