HC Deb 27 April 1966 vol 727 c34W
Mr. Arthur Davidson

asked the Attorney-General if he will introduce legislation to define more clearly the law of contempt, with particular reference to the rights of newspapers to interview witnesses or potential witnesses in legal proceedings and to publish developments in cases where a crime has been committed but no charge has yet been made.

The Attorney General

It is not the intention of the Government to introduce any such legislation in the near future.
