Press regulation: Charlotte Harris and Neil Wallis

Former newspaper editor Neil Wallis and media lawyer Charlotte Harris clashed over regulation of the press in a TV debate.

The former News of the World journalist was not happy with the Daily Politics film from Charlotte Harris, accusing her of using it to promote the legal film where she works.

He said statutory regulation was a "laughable concept" wanted by lawyers and politicians, claiming it would lead to the "press they want, not the press they deserve".

She said there was silence from newspapers over phone-hacking, showing self-censorship did not work.
