One media company was concerned that a trade agreement with Australia would partially or partially affect the PSB regime, allowing the UK to compete strongly with other countries in the av market. The need for free data flow has been a recurring theme of feedback, with interviewees stressing the importance of effective data protection and the need to prevent data relocation.
