I thank my hon. Friend, and I thank the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice, my hon. and learned Friend Lucy Frazer, for the work that she has done in this area.

Will he continue to work with the Society of Editors, the News Media Association and others to see what further measures can be taken to achieve that?
