Philip Webster, editor of digital editions of The Times, said the newspaper had “very serious concerns” about the press regulation proposals.
“We have serious concerns, we are looking at those concerns," he told ITV News UK Editor Lucy Manning.
“We are worried about the proposals for exemplary damages, we’re worried about the proposals for apologies, we’re worried about the overall cost of the plan.
“But we have yet to decide what to do, we are in no hurry.”
David Cameron has insisted a cross-party agreement for a new system of press regulation protects the principle of the free press.
Labour says this is just the sort of legal under-pinning they were looking for but the Conservatives say that no such press law will exist.
Is there a chance tomorrow's Commons' votes on press regulation may not go ahead? Could there be agreement between the parties after all?
