Statement on Royal Charter - Harriet Harman

Harriet Harman MP, Labour’s Shadow Culture Media and Sport Secretary, said:
“The Royal Charter agreed by Parliament has been finalised by all three parties and establishes a proper complaints system which does not affect the freedom of the press.
“The Charter meets the principles set out by Lord Justice Leveson which were unanimously supported in Parliament.
“I hope that the press will engage with this new system of independent self-regulation. We must have no press boycott.
“We need a press which is robust and free which holds those in power to account but which does not wreak havoc on the lives of innocent people.”
Labour Party
