Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg reacted to Lord Justice Brian Leveson’s final report into the culture, practices, and ethics of the British press. The report followed a year-long investigation after revelations of telephone hacking and other illegal behavior surfaced at Rupert Murdoch’s News International. He addressed the House of Commons separately as he did not agree with Prime Minister Cameron’s position that no new laws were needed to regulate the media. He responded to questions from members, including explaining that members of a coalition government were allowed to disagree on some issues. This is a portion of the debate. close
