We’ve made it easy for you. Even if you only have one minute, you can write to Harriet Harman to ask her to stand up against media ownership concentration. Simply use our letter below and send it to Just copy and paste the text into an email, signing off with your own name.   Dear Ms. Harman, Congratulations on your timely and important speech on media plurality on 13th June at the Charles Wheeler Lecture.  I very much welcome your call for stricter rules on media ownership and entirely support the suggestion of a regime of obligations. I strongly feel, however, that a 30 per cent ownership cap within sub-markets is not enough, and urge you to be persistent in showing your support for a lower limit, such as the 20 per cent audience-share threshold suggested by the Media Reform Coalition. Finally, I hope that you will continue to push for stricter rules in this area until a satisfactory result has been achieved. Yours sincerely, XXX     Every email counts! Thank you, Media Reform Coalition
