Carter gets out

Lord Carter is expected to release the 'Digital Britain' report next Tuesday ... and then resign, The Times reports here. Maybe he's running for cover, anticipating the reaction to proposals like these:
"The Government is thought to have backed away from proposals to require internet service providers to bar customers caught repeatedly accessing pirated material. Instead, insiders expect Lord Carter to recommend the introduction of premium-rate internet services that will allow users to access what they wish. Providers would then be expected to compensate music and film producers from a share of the additional revenue."
