On 3 February 2011, Labour's Anas Sarwar led a short debate on STV's bid for independent television company status.
STV is a Scottish TV network which has been broadcasting since 1957.
It incorporates two licences - one for the north of Scotland and one for central Scotland.
It produces regional programming to three and a half million viewers across Scotland each week.
STV asked the culture, media and sport department (DCMS) to allow it to be categorised not as a broadcaster but as an "independent producer", but its request was rejected in November last year.
DCMS said that STV's independent status would damage other production companies' prospects.
