"While covering a complex subject matter, this proposal is one that the Presidency recognises as important for the completion of the Digital Single Market and is therefore committed to put considerable efforts towards seeking compromise solutions in order to strike the delicate balance between an adequate level of privacy protection and sufficient incentives for innovation.
At the meeting of 17 January, the Presidency will invite delegations to express their views on these issues. If necessary, the discussion will continue in the next WP TELE meeting on e-PR on 30 January, otherwise planned for further outstanding aspects of the proposal, including presentation and restriction of the calling line identification; blocking incoming calls; publicly available directories and direct marketing communications. Restrictions to confidentiality of communications set out in Article 11 will be discussed later on."
