Listen to Leveson, hacking victims urge PM
David Cameron has insisted he is committed to reforming the regulation of Britain’s press, but refused to confirm he would implement all the recommendations of the Leveson Inquiry.
After 60 victims of phone hacking wrote an open letter to the Prime Minister calling for him not to water down the proposals, Mr Cameron said on the Andrew Marr Show: “We’ve got to wait for Lord Justice Leveson to produce his report... but I’m very clear that we’ve got to deal with this situation.”
However, Mr Cameron also said he did not want “heavy-handed” statutory regulation of the press.
The letter, organised by the Hacked Off campaign and published in the Observer, said some of the comments from senior Conservatives, including Mr Cameron, about press regulation had been "highly regrettable".
