House of Lords
Lord Black of Brentwood (Conservative)
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have made an assessment of whether any other member states of the European Union have systems of statutory press controls and of the effectiveness of those controls.
Baroness Verma (Whip, House of Lords; Conservative)
The Government have noted Module 4 of the Leveson inquiry on future press regulation, which has included analysis of systems of press regulation in other parts of Europe and elsewhere. The Government will respond to the Leveson inquiry in due course, once they receive recommendations for future press regulation due in Lord Justice Leveson's report this autumn.
