BBC, ITN and Sky ask David Cameron to lift cameras in court ban

BBC, ITN and Sky have co-signed a letter sent to the three main party leaders and parliamentarians calling for the lifting of the ban on cameras in courtrooms.

The letter, below, was sent ahead of an adjournment debate to discuss broadcasting in courts tabled by John Whittingdale MP and scheduled for the Westminster Hall on Wednesday.

The three have created a cross-broadcaster working group and have been working together to try to get cameras allowed in courtrooms, and are also asking for primary legislation to overturn the ban to be included in this year’s Queen’s Speech.
