Media reforms all but off the 2016 table

AAP logoAAP 22/11/2016

Media ownership reforms probably won't be voted on by parliament until next year, Communications Minister Mitch Fifield has conceded.

Labor has vowed to oppose the package because it disagrees with the two-out-of-three rule, which prevents a proprietor from controlling more than two of three radio, TV and newspapers in one area.

"Because of the limited number of sitting days left ... it may well be and probably will be next year before we can conclude that legislation," Senator Fifield told reporters in Canberra on Wednesday.
