Party leaders to hold Leveson talks
David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg are meeting to try to hammer out a deal on the Leveson proposals for press reform.
The party leaders will hold talks on the latest plans for a Royal Charter to underpin a new regulation system after Prime Minister's Questions.
A senior Labour source cautioned that the meeting did not mean they were on the verge of agreement, although wider cross-party talks are said to have been making progress.
The meeting comes after Labour upped the pressure on the Tories by tabling amendments that would leave it the option of inserting tough statute-backed reform into the Crime and Courts Bill on Monday.
The move effectively sets a deadline for Mr Cameron to either make progress on the issue or face a Commons vote - which he could lose as Labour and the Lib Dems join forces with some Tory backbenchers.
Shadow communities secretary Hilary Benn told BBC2's Daily Politics: "It's really important, now we come to the crucial moment, that ... if agreement can't be reached to implement full Leveson that Parliament can do it by means of a vote. In the end the Prime Minister has got to stick to the words that he said when Leveson was published."
Actor Hugh Grant - the phone hacking victim who fronts the Hacked Off group campaigning for full implementation of the Leveson recommendations - said he feared an acceptable agreement was still "a long, long way" off. "This will keep happening and the Government's legislative agenda will be completely screwed because no one will give up on this," he said of the move to open the Crime and Courts Bill option.
The progress of the Defamation Bill has been halted after peers led by Lord Puttnam inserted a new clause which would set up a statutory oversight body for press regulation.
Grant said: "This is the will of the people and it is not right that a tiny rump of Conservatives who happen to be in the executive are doing the will of the press, who they desperately need to stay there because the rest of their policies have gone cock-eyed."
Liberal Democrat pensions minister Steve Webb said: "The goal is doing a full Leveson, that has got to be what we aim for, that is what the Liberal Democrats are trying to achieve. But the other goal which Leveson was in favour of is all-party agreement, because the last thing we want is Labour and the Lib Dems to gang up and get something through in this Parliament and then you have a future Tory government that comes in and says, 'we never signed up to that', and then the regulation of the press becomes a political football, and we don't want that."
