Leaders on Digital Economy Act


Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg have responded to a question about why the Digital Economy Act was "rushed into law".

Labour party leader Gordon Brown said "there's got to be a lot more debate about the digital policies of the future".

Conservative Party leader David Cameron said the legislation was "rushed through too quickly" by the government.

Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats, said there had been a "stitch up".

The three party leaders answered key concerns from people who submitted questions for the digital debate mounted by YouTube and Facebook.
