The Labour party and the Liberal Democrats have published a Royal Charter on self regulation of the press, with Ed Miliband calling it a charter with "real teeth".
In a statement, Miliband said:
[The Royal Charter] differs from the proposal set out by the Prime Minister in three crucial respects.
“First, this must be an enduring settlement. That means underpinning the charter with the minimum amount of legislation needed to guarantee its success and independence over time.
Second, the regulator should be properly independent of the press, so we would remove the industry’s power of veto over appointments.
Finally, when wrong is done, the regulator should be able to investigate, as well as ensure a proper and prominent apology is made.
