News of the World closure does not change situation – Foster

July 8, 2023 by admin in News

Commenting on yesterday’s announcement that the News of the World is to close, Co-chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Culture, Media and Sport Committee, Don Foster said:

“This is a commercial decision that will affect many staff who had nothing to do the phone hacking scandal.

“The end of the News of the World does not change the situation because the issues go deeper than that.

“We need to find out the full extent of the phone hacking scandal and of the alleged police corruption and see those responsible for these vile actions prosecuted before we can close this dark chapter in British media history.”
