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

I'm looking at the culture, practice and ethics of the press. What I am seeking to do to ensure, for example, in relation to the regional press, that it isn't suggested for one moment by anyone that any of the concerns that have been expatiated before me apply to them. So I think that unless anybody wants to suggest to the contrary, fairness requires me to say that.

That's not the same -- in fact, I'm not sure whether any of the other titles has had nobody speak about it. I've not checked, and so don't ask some firm of solicitors to beaver through pages and pages and days and days as to whether it's so. I want to be fair, but I also need to be clear to justify the narrative that goes on to the need to consider the regulatory regime.
