The Prime Minister met newspaper editors in Downing Street today to discuss their response to the Leveson Report on ethics and standards earlier today.
Many editors are thought to favour a new press regulator that takes on board some of Lord Justice Leveson's proposals, but is not underpinned by legislation.
- Sarah Sands (London Evening Standard) said they were "talking about a couple of weeks to try to come up with a solution that really satisfies everybody".
- Chris Blackhurst (Independent) said they agreed that a new regulator would need to have powers to impose large fines and order printed apologies.
- Lloyd Embley (Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror, The People) said there is "a firm belief that papers can deliver Leveson principles far more quickly without legislation".
- Tony Gallagher (Daily Telegraph) likened today's meeting to "the summoning of the Five Families in The Godfather".
