Public interest defence

When asked about a public interest defence in law for journalism, the PMOS said the Prime Minister attached a great deal of importance to the UK?s strong and robust investigative journalism. With regard to recent high-profile cases, the PMOS said it was right that the Home Secretary was bringing forward a new revised code of practice for the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, and the Interception of Communications Commissioner?s review to see if more could be done in the same area.
