British PM Cameron urges quick setup of press regu
London: Britain`s prime minister has warned newspaper editors they must act quickly to set up an independent press regulator in the wake of a media ethics scandal.
David Cameron spoke days after a report he commissioned on press wrongdoing proposed that the press should be regulated by an independent body enshrined in law.
Cameron has expressed misgivings about that and today participated in a summit to hear proposals for a new system not backed by law.
He told the BBC that he`d said there that "the clock is ticking" for the industry to implement changes outlined in the report from Lord Justice Brian Leveson, which made recommendations to root out a subculture of unethical behavior that led to Britain`s phone-hacking scandal.
