The UK communications regulator Ofcom has concluded that it broke its own procurement rules when a contract was awarded to a lobbying firm run by two former Labour special advisers and an ex Plaid Cymru AM – reports Wales Online. The company concerned had been contracted by Ofcom Wales to monitor events at the National Assembly.

Ofcom is taking steps to remedy that.
