Private Eye's Ian Hislop for Leveson Inquiry

By Sam Marsden

Private Eye editor Ian Hislop will put forward his ideas for the future of Press regulation when he gives evidence to the Leveson Inquiry next week.

He joins a series of national and regional editors, including Alan Rusbridger of the Guardian, James Harding of the Times and Richard Wallace of the Daily Mirror.

Mr Hislop, also a panellist on BBC comedy Have I Got News For You, will appear at the Press standards inquiry on Tuesday.

He is likely to be asked about how Private Eye, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, deals with complaints given that it does not sign up to industry regulator the Press Complaints Commission.

The fortnightly satirical magazine has taken a close interest in the Leveson Inquiry and how it has been reported in national newspapers.
