Prime Minister David Cameron and the Culture Secretary Maria Miller will meet with national newspaper editors and proprietors today to discuss the findings of the Leveson Report.
The editors will also put forward their ideas for a new system of press regulation.
On Monday, the Culture Secretary said the Government is ready to use legislation to enforce effective regulation of the press if the industry fails to set up a genuinely tough and independent self-regulatory body along the lines set out in the Leveson report.
The Shadow Culture Secretary Harriet Harman has confirmed that a draft bill which would implement Leveson's recommendations will be ready by Christmas.
It's understood that this will allow Ed Miliband to force a vote in the Commons at the end of January if no cross-party agreement is reached. Labour and the Liberal Democrats are in favour of legislation which would underpin press regulation.
The Conservative Culture Secretary Maria Miller told the Commons that the government is also drafting its own separate legislation.
The Culture Secretary Maria Miller has confirmed that the government might introduce legislation to reduce the cost of pursuing a defamation case against the press.
Labour's Harriet Harman has told the commons that Britain must have significant change after the Leveson Inquiry. She said that parliament needed to introduce statues to regulate the press because self regulation has not worked.
The Culture Secretary Maria Miller has told the commons that implementing the suggestions of the Leveson Report will have a profound effect upon British democracy.
When asked by the Conservative MP for Portsmouth North Penny Mordaunt if there would be a free vote on the issue of whether to implement the recommendations made in the Leveson Report, Maria Miller said she hoped it wouldn't be necessary.
