The Government's plans to regulate the Press have not impressed local MPs.

Sammy Wilson complained to Culture Secretary Maria Miller that the Scottish government was consulted, but not the Executive.

Mark Durkan also had concerns. "It is not just because of the Northern Ireland twilight zone that some of us have doubts about whether a three-party compact, sealed by the Privy Council, is the best way of enshrining the Leveson principles," he said.
