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

Mr Browne, I don't believe for one moment that I will be suggesting any criticism or potential criticism at that level of detail. You referred to several of my earlier utterances to similar effect. I haven't actually considered what is the general heading of the point that may or may not be made about the way in which the press deal with massive police investigations, but it won't be that they hire surveillance teams, because even if it were so -- I'm not for a moment suggesting it is, but even if it were so, it's not a general problem that really does go to the culture, practices and ethics of the press. It may be a specific manifestation of an issue, but it would be the issue that I would be concerned about, not the manifestation.

So there will be a level of generality in any event. So I don't think you need be concerned about Ipswich.
