Fraser Nelson of The Spectator finds out what's been happening in Westminster this week
Parliamentarians are squaring up for Lord Justice Leveson's report on his inquiry into press standards. A group of Conservative MPs is calling for some sort of statutory regulation to prevent abuses suffered by people such as the McCanns, Chris Jefferies, and Millie Dowler's family.
Former Home Secretary David Blunkett thinks it is imperative to preserve press freedom, while Nadhim Zahawi Conservative feels there is a case for statutory underpinning to some form of regulatory practice.
While the European summit ended with no agreement on the budget, and no requirement for the Prime Minister to use his veto, the Justice Secretary Chris Grayling laid down his own challenge to the European Court of Human Rights announcing announcing legislative proposals onprisoners right to vote. Dominic Raab Conservative and Barry Gardiner Labour discuss.
And Nadine Dorries MP on her future as she prepares to return home from her excursion in the jungle.
The Editor is Marie Jessel.
