answer text <p>Neither I nor my Department has had any contact from Lebedev Holding Ltd or its representatives about the transaction. While the Secretary of State has powers under the Enterprise Act 2002 to intervene in certain media mergers raising public interest concerns, there is no requirement under the Enterprise Act 2002 for parties to advise us of the transaction.</p><p>My officials will contact Lebedev Holdings Ltd about the transaction, and to obtain further information to determine whether there has been a change of control which would give rise to a merger falling within the jurisdiction of the 2002 Act. However, writing to the party does not necessarily indicate that any transaction raises any public interest concerns.</p><p>These decisions are always made in a quasi judicial capacity by the Secretary of State.<strong><br></strong></p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government takes all attempts to deliberately disrupt and confuse the information environment very seriously. It is difficult to attribute the slight decline in uptake of the MMR vaccinations to any one source, however, we will work with our colleagues in the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England to assess the impact that disinformation and manipulation of social and traditional media may have on this issue.</p> more like this
