UK Government Pushes Press Regulation Plans Back to Autumn

A huge headache all around


The government's plan for a new press regulator has been officially put back to the autumn after a privy council meeting on Wednesday referred the matter to a new committee.

Wednesday's meeting, which was attended by privy council president Nick Clegg, chancellor George Osborne, education secretary Michael Gove and the liberal democrat peer Lord McNally, formally referred the matter to a sub committee of politicians.

Neither the privy council or the office of the culture secretary Maria Miller was able to confirm who will be on the committee.
