MP stands up for journalism

Phil Willis, Lib Dem MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough, has given a statement in support of NUJ members at The Press, which covers part of his constituency, and the Gazette & Herald. He had this to say:
“As a local MP and resident of York I have relied on the professionalism of the
journalists at the Press for over 25 years. The standard of copy and accuracy of
reporting often complex stories is due to the high standard of journalism. The
speedier this unnecessary dispute is settled and local journalists are treated
with respect and parity the better.”
