Digital Switchover (Disclosure of Information) Bill
AIM
The Bill allows social security information to be shared with the BBC in order to assist the delivery of the Digital Switchover Help Scheme.

The Help Scheme, which the BBC will help establish and fund, will provide practical help for people aged 75 and over or with a significant disability to help them manage the transition from analogue to digital-only television.

This process of digital switchover starts in Whitehaven at the end of 2007 and will be rolled-out region by region.

If all goes according to plan, the process will be completed by 2012.
