Commenting, Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party Committee on Culture, Olympics Media and Sport, Don Foster said:

"No longer can we accept a regulator that works for the benefit of the press, rather than the public.

"We have heard enough empty condemnations from politicians who used to be in bed with press barons. Now is the time for reform. Media power must become more transparent, scrutinised, and dispersed.

"Liberal Democrats have made clear that the scandal won't truly be over until there is fundamental change in how the media is run."
