Press barred from reporting parliamentary question

BY INDEX ON CENSORSHIP

Solicitors Carter-Ruck have successfully barred the Guardian newspaper from reporting a parliamentary question about an earlier injunction on reporting about a client’s activities. The Guardian has pledged to fight the injunction, with editor Alan Rusbridger saying: “The media laws in this country increasingly place newspapers in a Kafkaesque world in which we cannot tell the public anything about information which is being suppressed, nor the proceedings which suppress it. It is doubly menacing when those restraints include the reporting of parliament itself.”
