This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition The Government immediately brings the Crime and Courts Act 2013 s.40 into force.
Parliament enacted s.40(6) “This section does not apply until such time as a body is first recognised as an approved regulator”. IMPRESS is an approved regulator. Secretaries of State say, ‘The time is not yet right’. Further consultation defies the will of Parliament: an abuse of government power.
If a TV/radio programme treats you unfairly and/or unwarrantably infringes your privacy, you have a right to complain to the independent Ofcom. The Press should also be accountable without costs risk to the complainant: but they continue to complain and lobby!
