Media Secretary Matt Hancock said it was not in the national interest to go ahead with part two of the Leveson Inquiry which laid bare the cozy ties between British leaders, police chiefs and press barons in its initial conclusions in 2012.
At the time the government said there would be a second phase, looking at "unlawful or improper conduct" within media organizations and their relations with the police.

"Section 40 was created to give protection to journalists and newspapers who signed up to an independent regulator while enabling the public to seek redress cheaply and quickly", said Labour's Tom Watson, accusing the government of capitulating to pressure on the issue, as well as the wider inquiry. Britain needs high-quality journalism to thrive in the new digital world. The ruling Conservative Party opposed Leveson "part two" in its election manifesto past year.
