Labour leader Ed Miliband, who met Hacked Off representatives including phone-hacking victims in his office amid the summit of editors in Downing Street, said they wanted "more than good intentions" from the press.
We need the promises that have been made to be put into legislation so that what we actually have is the independent self-regulation but (with the) guarantee of law.
Then we can say to members of the public 'Look, people have suffered in the past but Parliament has stepped up to its responsibilities, we've done the right thing whatever people in the press say... and actually we have ensured other people will not have to suffer in the future in the way that victims have suffered in the past.'
