The Department for Culture, Media and Sport's offices in Whitehall.

Topics of interest for the Review include the role of "search engines" (plural, a reminder that other search engines are available, see, for example here and here.). Also within its remit are the effects of social media, digital advertising and "threats to financial stability."

While it's about journalism across all media, the Review will focus on "the press" in particular, with local and regional press being considered to be of "core social importance."
