MEDIA intrusion into privacy came under scrutiny at a Chancery Bar Association seminar which tackled confidentiality and the Press.
Peter Preston, editor-in-chief of The Guardian and The Observer newspapers, was a special guest at the debate on 'Confidentiality, privacy and the Press', which was held at Lincoln's Inn's Old Hall last Tuesday.
The debate was introduced by Alastair Wilson QC, of 19 Old Buildings, and Kevin Garnett QC, of 5 New Square.
Wilson said the seminar was held in the light of several recent court rulings on confidentiality. He added that the Press Complaints Committee was also displaying a greater willingness to "show its teeth" on the issue.
"Lawyers should be aware that they can advise their clients to go to the commission," he said.
