Part Two Of The Leveson Inquiry

EDM number 1079 in 2017-19, proposed by Chris Williamson on 15/03/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Police, Press and Public inquiries.

That this House is hugely disappointed and angered by the Government's refusal to proceed with Phase 2 of the Leveson Inquiry into the relationships between media companies and the police; believes that this is bad for politics, bad for journalism and bad for the public; further believes there is a clear need for an inquiry into whether the botched initial investigation into telephone hacking by the Metropolitan Police was due to ineptitude or because of the cosy relationship between senior executives of both organisations, with high-ranking officers being rewarded with lucrative columns in Rupert Murdoch's newspapers; believes that we need an investigation into the mass amnesia and ignorance of newspaper executives at the Leveson inquiry and at parliamentary committee hearings; and still considers that there is overwhelming public interest in an inquiry into the extent of corporate governance and management failures at newspapers organisations and the role of politicians, public servants and others in any failure to investigate wrongdoing at News International.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
