*R (on the application of News Media Association) v Press Recognition Panel

Press and printing – Regulation. The defendant Press Recognition Panel (the PRP) had not erred in its decision to grant recognition to the interested party, which regulated number of small or smaller publishers. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the claimant News Media Association's application for judicial review, held that the PRP had not misinterpreted or misapplied the Royal Charter on Self-Regulation of the Press 2013, in particular, with respect to IMPRESS's de minimus support, third-party funding, independence and impartiality.
