Morning Star Newspaper

EDM number 479 in 1989-90, proposed by Tony Benn on 07/02/1990.

That this House believes that a Press of diverse editorial opinion is vital in a democracy and is concerned about the lack of such diversity within the British Press; notes that the co-operatively owned Morning Star provides news coverage and features that are not available in other newspapers; and wishes it well in its campaign to raise ú150, 000 to enable it to survive.

This motion has been signed by a total of 42 MPs.
