Leveson 2 ditched


The government has ditched the second part of the Leveson Inquiry, which was due to look into allegations of unlawful conduct by the media and relations between police and the press. It will also scrap s 40 of the Crime and Courts Act, which if enacted would have required media organisations to pay legal costs in defamation, privacy and harassment cases, even if they won, unless they signed up to a state-backed regulator.
