Lord Justice Leveson

Post by Guest on 09.10.13 15:56

Judge gives evidence on the Public Inquiries Act and whether it gave him the powers he needed for his inquiry

10.14am BST
Welcome

Good morning and welcome to the live blog.
Lord Justice Leveson will make his first significant public appearance in the UK when he gives evidence to a House of Lords committee this morning.

The committee of peers is investigating the Inquiries Act 2005 – which means we may learn more than we ever thought about the finer points of judicial inquiries – but is likely to question Leveson on his own sprawling investigation into the culture and ethics of the press.

The timing of Leveson's appearance is prescient: David Cameron's government on Tuesday rejected the newspaper industry's proposals for a beefed-up watchdog in favour of a rival charter agreed by the main political parties. Almost a year since Leveson published his report, the press and parliament remain in a state of deadlock over the future regulation of newspapers.

An interesting subplot to today's hearing is that Baroness Buscombe, the ex-chairman of the Press Complaints Commission, is on the committee. Buscombe was given a tough time before Leveson's inquiry last February when she was questioned on the PCC's discredited report into phone hacking in 2009.

This is the first of two appearances by Leveson. Today's hearing, expected to last an hour, will focus on inquiries – but tomorrow press regulation will be centre stage as he faces the House of Commons culture, media and sport committee, chaired by Tory MP John Whittingdale.
The hearing begins at 10.40am.

He certainly doesn't sound very happy, but could that be because we haven't seen him in the news recently. ha ha.

An inquiry into an inquiry to see if the person selected for the initial inquiry was qualified to hold that inquiry....

and the cost to the UK taxpayer?

They are good.
And incidentally most of the material submitted to Grange and the PJ has been sent to strobes@private-eye.co.uk as a form of insurance
