Comprehensive answer on the use of D-Notices

I have been bombarded with questions about the use of D-Notices in relation to a parliamentary question I asked about an historic child abuse case. I wrote to the secretary of the D-Notice committee. The Minister, Mark Francois, has given a comprehensive reply.

I hope this puts an end to the large amount of inaccurate speculation made on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

“It is an unfortunate aspect of the internet that the normal professional standards of jounalistic reporting are ignored.”

It is also an unfortunate aspect of some of today’s journalistic reporting that normal professional standards are ignored?

So who is setting the standards? And who in a cut throat business environment feels bound to follow them.

Cue Leveson?
