Mail, Mirror & Sunday Times editors to discuss Leveson

The Editors' Code of Practice Committee, which sets the guidelines which the Press Complaints Commission must enforce, has announced it will meet next Wednesday to discuss its response to the Leveson report.

Committee chairman Paul Dacre, who is also the Daily Mail editor, said:

Lord Justice Leveson has set us a number of challenges: our task is to address them as urgently as possible.

We very much hope Wednesday's meeting will lay the framework for a fresh approach to the Editor's Code which will answer concerns raised during the inquiry.

Among the 13 editors on the committee are the Daily Mirror's editor Richard Wallace, Geordie Greig, London Evening Standard editor, and The Sunday Times editor John Witherow.
