The transcripts of the official inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the press. More…

Thank you. You go on in your statement to tell us about the activities of Trinity Mirror under the heading "Corporate responsibility". You refer to the Pride of Britain awards which we've heard about from another witness, how Trinity Mirror has won six successive gold awards from RoSPA and about the group's environmental and health and safety credentials more generally, and also about its charity work.

You then move on to the culture of ethics. Can I ask you: it's conspicuous in your disclosure that Trinity Mirror has a large number of paper systems as part of its system of corporate governance. To what extent do you think that in addition to those extensive paper systems and processes it is incumbent upon the chief executive of the organisation to provide an ethical and professional lead?
