Backtracking on Leveson?

Keywords: Press law, Freedom of the press, Leveson

Abstract

Julian Harris (Deputy General Editor, Amicus Curiae) looks at two developments within the space of a week in autumn 2016 which revived debate over the post-Leveson system of press regulation. The first of these was the decision by the Press Recognition Panel (PRP) on October 25, 2016 to recognise IMPRESS as an “approved regulator”. The second was a surprise consultation launched by Culture Secretary Karen Bradley on November 1, 2016 - Consultation on the Leveson Inquiry and its implementation:Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013 and Part 2 of the Leveson Inquiry.
