The Government of Gibraltar has today published regulations which amend section 35 of the Broadcasting Act 2012. The changes to the Act address concerns raised by the European Commission regarding the effectiveness of the current section 35 with respect to the protection of minors from on-demand audiovisual media services. As amended, section 35 will protect minors from programmes which might seriously impair their physical, mental or moral development (where content includes pornography or gratuitous violence).
The PDP welcomes the announcement of the purchase of the old Queens Cinema by the Government to convert this into a much needed theatre for Gibraltar. The provision of this was a PDP manifesto commitment and that it is now going to become a reality can only be a positive move for drama, culture, entertainment and the promotion of these in our people and our schools. The location of the new theatre at the old cinema site is far more functional than the old Theatre Royal site well apart from the financial fiasco that particular GSD project turned into.
