Newspapers seek injunction over press regulation royal charter

Industry says government rejection of its rival plan for a new press regulator is 'wholly unfair, irrational and unlawful'

The Guardian, Monday 28 October 2013 21.49 GMT

Newspaper and magazine publishers are seeking an injunction to prevent the government's plan for a new press regulation regime getting the royal seal of approval this week.

Industry bodies representing publishers said they would be seeking the injunction to stop the press regulation royal charter – backed by the three main parties and Hacked Off campaigners – going before the privy council for sealing by the Queen on Wednesday.

They also filed their case for a judicial review of the government's rejection of the industry's rival plan for a new press regulator on Monday.

The case filed at the high court in London argues that the decision by a privy council sub-committee to reject the industry's proposed regulatory system underpinned by a royal charter was "wholly unfair, irrational and unlawful".

"The statement of facts and grounds lodged with the high court today contends that the decision by the privy council committee was wholly unfair, irrational and unlawful," the publishers said in a joint statement.

"It argues that the failure of the privy council committee to carry out a fair and transparent consultation on the industry's royal charter application was made even more significant by the fact that the possible involvement of the state in the regulation of the press raised very serious constitutional issues.

"Given the gravity of these constitutional issues, the industry's lawyers asked the privy council on Friday to give an undertaking that the rival cross-party royal charter, written by politicians and the Hacked Off lobby group, would not be presented to the Queen for sealing on Wednesday. That request has been refused and an injunction will now be sought."

I do wonder why this has not been reported on any main news programs, guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

Yes hope they manage to stop this nonsense.   The Press will be on the warpath I think, some very, very interesting times ahead possibly.

Great stat's, are these available to everyone? I would not know where to find them.

It is interesting, that two of the mccann's most powerful, supporting mp's, (in gordon brown and esther mcvey), were absent.

It is possible, that we will never know what their real intention's were, because they did not vote.

I have my own opinion on their motives. I would not try and enforce that opinion upon anyone, unlike those individuals would try to do to me..Make your own mind up.

Their abscence, after playing such a major part in the direction of the mccann agenda of silencing the press, though, could speak volumes'.

Only time will tell.

Who?What?Where?

Should know this morning if the press have got their injunction.

Press regulation: Judge for yourself - the Royal Charter in full

Read all about it: The ‘final draft’ of the controversial charter, with explanatory notes by our media editor, Ian Burrell

Opinions on this subject are as passionate as they are polarised. Yet how many people who feel strongly about it know what the charter says? The Independent is unusual among newspapers not just in being unimplicated in the scandals unearthed by the Leveson Inquiry but also in its belief that its readers can be trusted to make up their own minds on important matters – if they are given the factual tools with which to do so.

Yes, the expenses scandal would never have seen the light of day.  

I'm beginning to think that the whole McCann case has been used as  a tool to gain control over 'freedom of speech' 
Moon goddess may be right that this is one big social experiment to see how much rubbish we can swallow. 

Underground press will be so exciting!

Newspapers Lose Battle To Halt Royal Charter
1:31pm UK, Wednesday 30 October 2013 

Newspaper publishers have lost a last-ditch legal challenge to stop the Government's press regulation plans being approved.

Two judges ruled they did not have an arguable case to challenge a decision rejecting proposals for a rival charter backed by the newspaper industry.

The publishers were refused an injunction to stop ministers going to the Privy Council today with plans to seek the Queen's approval for a rival royal charter.

They intend to take their case to the Court of Appeal this afternoon.
The rival charter is backed by the three major political parties but bitterly opposed by much of the industry.
