By Pretending it’s Business As Usual and Backtracking on Leveson, The Tories are Deliberately Turning a Blind Eye
Maria Eagle MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, responding to reports victims of press abuse have written a letter to David Cameron accusing him of failing to keep the “solemn promises” he made during the phone hacking scandal said:
“It’s time David Cameron and his Culture Secretary, John Whittingdale, delivered on the Government’s clear promise to the British public, to Parliament and directly to the victims of phone hacking and fully implemented the cross-party agreement on Leveson’s recommendations.
“The Government must get on with commencing Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013 immediately and get on with facilitating the second part of the Leveson inquiry.
“By pretending it is business as usual and backtracking on Leveson, the Tories are deliberately turning a blind eye to serious allegations of high-level corruption and collusion between the press, the police, politicians and the judiciary.”
