Points of Order: [2nd Day] (14 Jul 2016)

Kirsten Oswald: ..., make sure you do it in plain sight so that no one can accuse you of concealing anything—except the truth. It is instructive to remember who the cheerleaders for Blair’s action were. The inquiry notes that an editorial in the News of the World claimed that the dossier would be as devastating as it was vital, and show that Saddam had enough chemical and biological stocks to...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (1st Day) (11 Jul 2016)

Lord Strasburger: ...reproduces the RIPA Section 1 criminal offence of phone hacking, of which the Prime Minister’s director of communications, Andy Coulson—among others—was convicted when he was editor of the News of the World. I invite the House to support the amendment in this group proposed by the noble Baroness, Lady Hollins, which provides access to justice for victims of phone hacking...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (27 Jun 2016)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: ...I look forward to hearing what he has to say. Clause 1 re-legislates the criminal offence of hacking telephones that saw the conviction of the Prime Minister’s press secretary for conduct when he was the editor of the News of the World. Nine other senior journalists at more than one newspaper—indeed, at more than one newspaper group—were also convicted. There were...

Press Regulation — Question (26 Jan 2016)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...said, it was delayed pending the conclusion of criminal prosecutions. My understanding is that those prosecutions have now been completed. If that is the case, we know that hacking took place at the News of the World and at Mirror Group titles but we do not know exactly what went on elsewhere. Can we have confirmation from the noble Baroness that the second part of the public inquiry will...

Isil: Wilson Doctrine (19 Oct 2015)

Chris Bryant: ...that their telephones are being tapped. This delusion spreads to hon. Members and I should say that I used to suffer from it myself at one time.”—[ Official Report, 17 November 1966; Vol. 736, c. 636.] He, of course, was joking, but as one who knows for certain that his phone was tapped by The News of the World, I say to the Government, “Do not take us for fools. We in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Tributes to Charles Kennedy (3 Jun 2015)

Tom Watson: ...figure and party leader. He was shy, but always polite. He was kind, engaging and a good dad. I enjoyed his wry humour. He used to joke about how we shared the same private investigator from the News of the World. He had an ability to bring levity to the dark corners of British political life that made the bad days at the office easier to cope with, yet as many Members all too painfully...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Justice Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Jun 2015)

Basil McCrea: I believe that the Member's instincts are correct in this. I certainly support it, but I encourage him to understand that this is part of the solution, not the whole solution. This is a tough message to get out. If you are going to do the positive things and say that this will give some protection, you also have to explain to the general public that they cannot go around accusing people...

Business of the House (12 Mar 2015)

Philip Davies: ...previous interest in phone hacking, would have been all over this like a rash. In such a debate, we could find out why the Labour party needed a judge-led inquiry into phone hacking at the News of the World, but does not raise a breath about the extensive phone hacking at the Mirror Group.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Jun 2014)

Ed Miliband: ...know that the Prime Minister wilfully ignored multiple warnings about him. On 8 July 2009, The Guardian published evidence of phone hacking on an industrial scale while Andy Coulson was editor of the News of the World. At that time, Andy Coulson was his director of communications. What action did he take?

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

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 Feb 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 Jan 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 Jan 2013)

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...
