Neil Wallis on press regulation and Leveson Inquiry

Former newspaper editor Neil Wallis, said "an unsavoury alliance" of celebrities, lawyers and politicians were getting together to limit press regulation for their own interests.

The ex-Sun and News of the World journalist said existing libel and privacy laws could already be used against illegal activities.

But he said new press laws would give MPs a press they could control, and allow politicians to silence questions they did not want to answer.
