MST director appears before Joint Committee on Privacy

On Monday 14th November, Martin Moore, director of the Media Standards Trust, gave oral evidence to the 25-strong Joint Committee on Privacy and Injunctions, alongside Professor Julian Petley, John Kampfner and Sir Christopher Meyer.

The four of them were asked about whether the current balance between the right to privacy and the right to free expression was the right one; about whether Parliament should enact a privacy law, about the effectiveness – or ineffectiveness – of the existing system of press regulation; and the need for stronger public interest defences for journalism.
