Danny Alexander commits Lib Dems to seeking further changes to Digital Economy Bill

Speaking at the Liberal Democrat spring conference this morning, Danny Alexander MP (Vice Chair of the Federal Policy Committee and chair of the party’s General Election Manifesto Group) said the party will seek to make further changes to the Digital Economy Bill when it comes to the Commons.

The Bill, currently passing through the Lords, has been the subject of much debate (such as here and here) and yesterday Liberal Democrat peers announced plans to table further amendments to the bill.

This morning Danny Alexander committed the party to supporting further changes to the Digital Economy Bill. He said:

There is more work to be done to improve it yet further when it comes to the House of Commons.

Danny Alexander also said that following the general election the party would need to develop and update its policies in this area further, commenting:

I’m not sure the party’s policy has necessarily kept pace with developments.
