HC Deb 19 May 1988 vol 133 c549W
Mr. Tony Banks

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make it his policy to set up a Press Standards Council; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Renton

The Government have no plans to set up a council to oversee press standards. There is already in place a system of self-regulation under the auspices of the Press Council.
