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

Firstly, let me just put it in some kind of context. This article was in the Mail on Sunday, all right? It has its own autonomous editor, as I made clear to the Inquiry earlier in the week, and I think you already spent a great deal of time with our legal director and, indeed, him discussing this. I, however, am now prepared to talk about it.

I think the central thing we have to say about this, whatever is in the article and whatever is in those four paragraphs, we admitted at the time we got it wrong, we paid your client modest damages, so in that sense anything referring to this article, it's already been acceded that it's wrong.
