Statement on Brexit by the Chairman of the Legal, Policy and Regulatory Affairs Committee of the NMA Lord Guy Black

Press releases , February 3, 2020

“Although the UK is leaving the European Union, there will continue to be fundamental issues affecting UK news media companies which are pan European in scope and which will impact on the editorial and commercial futures of UK publishers. As a result, EU policy initiatives will continue to be of great significance for the UK News Media Association (NMA) and its members, especially at a time of rapid global transformation within the industry, and it is crucial that the UK continues to play its full part in the development of policy at a European level. The NMA’s membership of News Media Europe (NME) is therefore of vital importance to UK news media companies and will help ensure the European legal and policy framework underpins freedom of expression and the sustainability of independent news provision across Europe. We will continue to play a full and active role within NME.”
