RSGB Paper suggests additional access to 40 MHz unlikely in the UK

The IARU Region 1 (Africa, Europe, Middle-East) Interim Meeting takes place April 27-28 in Vienna, Austria.

An Information Paper submitted by the RSGB seems to suggest additional access to 40 MHz is unlikely in the UK. See below... 

Document number: VIE19 C5 INFO1 
Source: RSGB – Murray Niman G6JYB, Spectrum Chair 
Subject: Innovation Bands & Activities (Information Paper) Committee(s): 
C5 Summary: The Information below is a short summary regarding the additional spectrum available to UK Full Licensees and how it is used. 

In general:- 
• All require a strong justification, conditions to avoid interference and have a Strong Emphasis on Innovation & New Activities – not ‘More of the Same’ 
• They are renewable permits - not permanent allocations 
• Renewal is based on regular progress reports to our regulator against the purpose it was made available for Previous Bands/Requests:- 
40 MHz – One Propagation Beacon – additional access refused
