The Northern Ireland Command Papers – A conversation with George Woodman

George Woodman began working with official publications three years preceding his appointment to Stormont where he was the Librarian before retiring on 31st March 2011. His career spanning 37 years establishes him by his contemporaries as the authority on Northern Ireland official publications, and this is matched with his depth of understanding and experience of official papers emanating from the wider jurisdictions of the UK and Ireland. His papers, “A Century of Partition”, (Church of Ireland Clougher Diocesan Magazine 2021) and “Official Publications – 30 years of change”, (published in Refer Summer 2012), explain the establishment of Northern Ireland and the changes in official publishing during his career. Both provide valuable context for this piece, which focuses on the Northern Ireland Command Papers (NI Cmd. Papers). Relating to a wide range of topics, most Command Papers were…

Gigabit-broadband: Funding for rural and hard to reach areas – “As of January 2022, 64% of UK premises had a gigabit-broadband connection available, according to the telecoms regulator, Ofcom. That’s a connection that can support download speeds of at least 1 gigabit per second.

The Government’s target is for gigabit-broadband to be available nationwide by 2030, with 85% of premises expected to be met by 2025. Nationwide coverage means “at least 99%”.

Around 20% of premises, mostly in rural areas, are estimated to require public funding to deliver gigabit-broadband. This briefing looks at current and past government funding programmes for gigabit-broadband roll-out. These programmes follow the Government’s previous publicly-funded superfast broadband programme.”
