Tabled 06 November 2017
2017-19 Session
There has been an amendment to this EDM.
That this House believes a free and independent press is vital to healthy political and public life; notes the contribution of Scottish newspapers to political and public life; welcomes the focus of papers, such as the Scotsman, on news from a Scottish perspective; and condemns the acquisition of publishers and the publicity surrounding it to undermine good journalism and promote personal agendas.
