Anne Lambert is stepping down as director of operations after three years at telecoms regulator Oftel.

She is returning to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) having played an important role in helping to introduce unmetered Internet access to the UK.

Ms Lambert has also overseen the difficult and testing introduction of local loop unbundling in the UK.

Her replacement as second in command is Peter Waller who joins Oftel from the DTI where he is deputy chief executive of the small business service.

He starts work on Monday and will oversee the day-to-day work of the telecoms regulator.

According to a statement, he has extensive knowledge of the current issues facing UK businesses. Which is handy.

Separately, the Government announced yesterday that £24 million was being made available to support the UK's computer and information technology industry.

Half the cash will come from the DTI and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The rest will be funded by industry.

The cash will be used to fund projects between companies and universities designed to develop new display and storage products. Which is nice. ®
