Did you mean: "new of the world"?

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (5 November 2013)

Lord Martin of Springburn: .... It is. Some people in the Press Gallery have been there for years and years, and they are entitled to be there, but sometimes their newspaper will say, “We’re sorry but you’re no longer required. You’re redundant”. That must have happened to the boys on the News of the World and there are others in that category. Some of them get to like this place so much...

Backbench Business — Future of the BBC (21 October 2013)

Chris Bryant: ...every director-general, and most directors of programmes, quizzed on BBC radio and television programmes with an aggression equal to that shown to any politician. I do not recall, not even throughout the phone hacking scandal at the News of the World, Rupert Murdoch ever being interviewed by Sky. That is not to say that I do not think Sky is a good broadcaster; I think it is a great news...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Press Self-Regulation (8 October 2013)

Dennis Skinner: Is it not a fact that the road to Leveson has been littered with many bodies: the News of the World, Brookes, Coulson and, who knows, it might even be Paul Dacre of the Daily Mail next? Instead of this prevarication, why does she not accept that it is refreshing that on occasions the Opposition are right? Get on with it and let us get this Leveson inquiry done and dusted.

Leveson Inquiry: Report — Question (13 May 2013)

Lord Soley: ...of outrage that is felt, not just by victims, at the way senior members of the press are trying to override the will of Parliament? They claim press freedom, but they were the ones who closed the News of the World rather than sacking the chief executive and chairman. Why are we listening to them when they ought to be showing a bit of humility and recognising the will of Parliament?

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Department: Daniel Morgan (10 May 2013)

Theresa May: ...in protecting those responsible for the murder from being brought to justice and the failure to confront that corruption; the incidence of connections between private investigators, police officers and journalists at the News of the World and other parts of the media and alleged corruption involved in the linkages between them. The panel will ensure maximum possible disclosure of all...

Scottish Parliament: Press Regulation (30 April 2013)

Patrick Harvie: ...than in Scotland. However, even if we acknowledge that, I do not think that such differences matter very much in considering what regulation is necessary for the press. It is not enough to point to the now defunct News of the World and say that Scottish titles were not responsible for the worst of this deteriorating culture. The proposals for regulation must be about the future. Of course,...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Report (5th Day) (18 March 2013)

Lord Fowler: My Lords, I think there is something rather odd about the procedures of this House. It is no criticism of my noble friend at Question Time, but we all remember his rather cautious replies to questions. The first point to make is that all the detail was actually in the Evening Standard, which could be found in the Library. The second point is that it has now been confirmed that the Defamation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Royal Charter on Press Conduct (18 March 2013) See 1 other result from this debate

Chris Bryant: ...said that it should have been a B, deciding that it should have been an A-plus. Not only was the PCC not independent; it was held in contempt. Throughout the revelations on phone hacking by the News of the World, the PCC decided not to investigate. That was partly because it did not have the power to investigate, but I believe that it also chose not to investigate. It always took the line...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Press Regulation (13 February 2013)

Kevin Brennan: On a day when six more former journalists of the News of the World have been arrested, including two sitting journalists of The Sun, on charges which the police say represent a new conspiracy in the phone-hacking scandal, is it not even more important than ever that the Secretary of State shows some urgency about her action? Unless real action is taken and unless the full principles of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Clause 1 — Up-rating of certain social security benefits for tax years 2014-15 and 2015-16 (21 January 2013)

Liam Byrne: ...and a moral disgrace. In the past, we used to think of poverty only in absolute terms… That’s not enough. We need to think of poverty in relative terms.” The Chancellor was even blunter when he said to the News of the World: “We’re all in this together. I’m not going to balance the Budget on the backs of the poor.” That encouraged the Secretary of...

Leveson Inquiry — Motion to Take Note (11 January 2013) See 6 other results from this debate

Lord Soley: ...of the press. My noble friend Lady Liddell is absolutely right: this was a massive failure of management within the media industry, and particularly in the press. We should bear in mind that the News of the World was, until relatively recently, a good newspaper that did good journalism. It went off the rails, and the newspaper was closed down, but Rupert Murdoch and James Murdoch stayed in...

Bob Russell: ...of the Maldon and Burnham Standard, I headed for Fleet street, where, over a four-year period, I worked as a sub-editor on the London Evening News and the London Evening Standard, with brief periods in between on the fledgling newly acquired Murdoch Sun and the News of the World . I should stress that I worked as a sports sub on the News of the World. I bring to the debate my experience...

Leveson Inquiry — Statement (29 November 2012)

Lord McConnell of Glenscorrodale: My Lords, I discovered towards the end of the Leveson inquiry that my daughter's mobile phone had been hacked 10 years ago. Her intimate conversations were used in a story published in the News of the Worldand other publications. Will the Government and the leaders of all parties bear in mind that it is not just those in the public eye but the families of those in the public eye, including...

Bill Presented — Energy Bill: Leveson Inquiry (29 November 2012) See 2 other results from this debate

Edward Miliband: May I start by thanking the Prime Minister for his statement? May I say straight away that in the days and weeks ahead I will seek to convince him and this House of Commons that we should put our faith in the recommendations of Lord Justice Leveson that were delivered to us today? I am sorry that the Prime Minister is not yet there, but I hope to convince him over the days ahead that that is...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill — Second Reading (14 November 2012)

Lord Low of Dalston: ...Savile affair, the system of care homes in North Wales, the rigging of LIBOR, price-fixing in the energy industry, Hillsborough, the Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, phone-hacking at the News of the World;the list goes on-one has to ask whether it is really wise to be narrowing the protection given to whistleblowers. I will touch only on the changes proposed in Part 5 to equality...

Prime Minister’s Evidence (Leveson Inquiry) (13 November 2012) See 2 other results from this debate

Chris Bryant: ...at Soham, there was an investigation by the Culture, Media and Sport Committee 10 years ago into what happened with the press and the way that local people were badgered. However, it is only following the News of the World investigations that people have, I think, come to the conclusion that the door of self-regulation’s last-gasp saloon has already been firmly slammed. That is why...

Media Standards and Media Regulation — Motion to Take Note (25 October 2012) See 2 other results from this debate

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...the bar high for press freedom. The Government set up the Leveson inquiry last year in response to the phone-hacking scandal, culminating in the news that Milly Dowler's phone had been hacked by the News of the World. The Government are determined to get to the bottom of all that journalists and their agents were doing in hacking into phone messages, what the police knew when, what they...

Points of Order (18 September 2012)

Chris Bryant: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Today, it has been revealed that the Metropolitan police has known for 10 years that the News of the World had commissioned a company called Southern Investigations to commit burglaries to secure information and to confirm potentially scurrilous—and, as it turned out, completely baseless—rumours, and that it knew that one of the executives at the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Leveson Inquiry (13 September 2012)

Chris Bryant: ...one mistake already, because there is not to be one report by Leveson: there are meant to be two, and I believe that the second is the more important. It is to be on what actually happened at the News of the World. So far, Lord Justice Leveson and everybody else have rightly avoided the illegality, criminality and dodginess that went on between the police and the News of the World, for the...
