We therefore seek views on the following proposals for ITV1:
- retained nations and regions news, but a modest reduction in the minimum requirement for news minutage, reflecting removal of some daytime bulletins;
- reduced minimum requirements for nations and regions non-news programming, to 15 minutes in England and from 3 to 1.5 hours in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland;
- reduced quotas for out-of-London production to 35%, in the context of new commitments to such production from the BBC and Channel 4 (see below);
- reduced network current affairs minimum quota of 50 minutes per week, with the reduction largely outside peak time.
