New parliamentary bid to gag press, Indy reports


Parliament’s cross-party Intelligence and Security Committee wants a new law to stop news outlets reporting on matters which could undermine national security, the Independent reports.

The ISC is to call for a commission to be set up to look into this in its next report at the end of the year, the paper claims.

The move would effectively end the voluntary DA-Notice system which currently controls reporting on matters of national security and would make it statutory.
