    There are 2 issues in play here, the freedom of the press and potential criminal acts undertaken to source the information to construct a press viewpoint. Whilst the law should be thrown at people who break laws in order to source information, the Government needs to tread very carefully around the subject of controlling the press. History was not very kind to the Prime Minister, Lord Liverpool, and his Home Secretary, Lord Sidmouth, when they produced a series of press muzzling Acts in the early 1800’s and Shami Chakrabarti has already criticised possible legislation as perhaps being ‘illegal’. Governments need to tread very carefully when they act in this area because British people have fought for centuries for the right to express opinion.

    It does seem ironic that the British public ‘trust’ Governments to act as a backstop in this area

    Always challenge. Sadly the budgetary goalposts are only capable of X amount of expenditure. Difficult choices for all Councils and Central government

    The Council is elected…..therefore it is democratic.

    Whoever was in office would make cut backs. The key is to try and find an optimal way forward
