South Dorset MP Richard Drax speaks out against Royal Charter for press
Dorset MP Richard Drax was among the 14 MPs to defy a cross-party deal on press regulation.
The South Dorset MP spoke out against this week’s agreement on a new press watchdog established by Royal Charter.
Mr Drax, a former journalist, speaking in the House of Commons, said: "A tiny minority has ruined the barrel for the majority of the press, who in my view do an extremely good job and have held many people in this House to account.
"Some in this place have had to leave and have even gone to jail because of the press' research and diligence. We risk treading on that power at our peril."
