    Abstract

    Use it or lose it regime

    • A legislated scheme lacks the flexibility required to deal with complex sports rights negotiations and will inevitably result in events being wrongly delisted.

    • Any Ministerial decision to remove an event from the list should be a disallowable instrument.

    Allegations of Hoarding

    • There is no evidence of hoarding by the free-to-air networks. Last year, free-to-air networks broadcast 1648 hours of listed sport.
