Sky/21ST Century Fox: Merger (16 Mar 2017)

Tom Watson: ...of him as a chief executive officer and chairman”, contained this important caveat: “The evidence available to date does not provide a reasonable basis to find that” he “knew of widespread wrongdoing or criminality at” News of the World. The reason for that lack of evidence was that Ofcom did not have the power to gather the evidence it needed. Just a few...

Sky and 21st Century Fox: Proposed Merger - Statement (6 Mar 2017)

Lord Keen of Elie: her letter, she considered that a number of relevant matters warranted further investigation, including facts that led to the Leveson inquiry, for example, and the question of corporate governance at the News of the World. It will be open to Ofcom to look at all relevant areas—none are being ruled out in this context. The ultimate question will be whether the bidder shows a...

Sky/21ST Century Fox: Proposed Merger (6 Mar 2017)

Tom Watson: ...Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh), from which private information was taken unlawfully by Sun journalists at the request of several Sun executives. The former editor and the former head of legal affairs at News of the World were held in contempt of Parliament for lying to a Select Committee during its investigation into phone hacking. The Standards and Privileges Committee...

Policing and Crime Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Jan 2017)

Lord Paddick: ...Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, I met with the family of Milly Dowler. The Sunday before that series of meetings took place, Mr Dowler received a phone call from Surrey Police to tell him that the News of the World had told Surrey Police at the time of Milly Dowler’s disappearance that it had hacked into Milly Dowler’s voicemail and retrieved information from it. Surrey...

Policing and Crime Bill: Inquiry into complaints alleging corrupt relationships between police and newspaper organisations (10 Jan 2017)

Chris Bryant: ...working for News International, they went back to work for the Metropolitan police. There was a revolving door. On the very day that the police decided not to continue with the investigation into what had happened at the News of the World, the leading investigator was having dinner with Rebekah Brooks. We do not know all the facts because Lord Justice Leveson rightly said, “I cannot...

Policing and Crime Bill - Report (30 Nov 2016)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: ...not what was promised to the Hillsborough families or to other victims of press and police collusion or corruption. In the light of the conviction of Mazher Mahmood, the findings of the Hillsborough Independent Panel, the finding that News of the World executives lied to a Select Committee and the apparent continuation of what we might, kindly, call business as usual at some larger...

Investigatory Powers Bill: Civil liability for certain unlawful interceptions (1 Nov 2016)

Chris Bryant: ..., this is a question of keeping faith. Promises were made to the victims of phone hacking and press intrusion: people such as the family of the murdered schoolgirl Millie Dowler, whose voicemail messages were hacked by the News of the World, giving her family the desperate false hope that their daughter was still alive; people such as the family of Madeleine McCann, whose mother Kate said...

Privileges (27 Oct 2016)

Damian Collins: I wish to say a few words as a member of the Culture, Media and Sport Committee during the inquiry in the last Parliament into phone hacking at the News of the World. First, the case against Tom Crone and Colin Myler is compelling. It is based not on one evidence session where there may have been a slip of the tongue or a piece of misleading information given; this was a systematic attempt to...

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.
