Education and Culture Committee 3
The Education and Culture Committee took evidence from Peter Murray from NUJ Scotland and Dr Eamonn O'Neill from Strathclyde University in the second session on Lord McCluskey's report on the implications of Lord Leveson's inquiry into media regulation.
Mr Murray told the committee that the union liked the Irish model of press regulation with its ombudsman, on 16 April 2013.
He said a press regulator must "have teeth" and be independent of both politicians and paper proprietors.
He also called for the inclusion of a conscience clause to protect journalists from being bullied in to doing unethical or illegal reporting.
