PS 51



Memorandum submitted by Jim Sheridan MP


Having watched your Committee's recent enquiry into Press/Media responsibility there is no doubt in my mind that there is an overwhelming case for some kind of legislative control of this industry.


Mr Max Mosley's evidence reinforced my view that journalists are completely out of control and that the Press Complaints Commission is merely an internal talking shop.


I look forward to your Committee's report.
