The actor High Grant has urged the Government to establish an independent media regulator on the back of Lord Leveson's inquiry into press ethics.
"Self-regulation of the press is a system that has been proven to fail for 50 years," the actor told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show.
"What could come out of Leveson is an independent regulator. I do not see the slightest danger to freedom of speech from it."
Grant said he fears David Cameron's government could ignore the findings of the inquiry.
"Suddenly, sinisterly, a few weeks ago we start to get weird rumblings from (the Government) that Leveson is a waste of time," he said.
Speaking on the first day of the Tory party conference David Cameron rejected plans for a 'mansion tax' and signalled further budget cuts.
As the Conservative Party Conference begins David Cameron has already ruled out the controversial 'mansion tax' plans.
David Cameron today will pledge to use Britain's veto to block the European Union budget if it is not in the UK interest.
