Minister for Communications Alex White, TD, presented new media merger guidelines to today's Government meeting, where they were noted. The guidelines were drawn up under the Competition and Consumer Protection Act 2014, which gives the Minister for Communications powers to determine whether a media merger is in the public interest in terms of media plurality.

The guidelines, which were finalised following a public consultation process that attracted 14 written submissions, will be published on the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources website tomorrow morning (Wednesday).
