Last night (Thursday 28 June) saw the impact of the Leveson Debate on Scottish media discussed by a panel of former and current editors and columnists in Glasgow, as well as the effects that potential Independence could have as well.

A panel, moderated by Jim Chisholm, newly appointed director of the Scottish Newspaper Association, was made up of Allan Rennie, editor-in-chief of Media Scotland, Atholl Duncan, former head of news at BBC Scotland, John Mclellan, former editor of The Scotsman and now communications director for The Scottish Conservative Party and lawyer and columnist for The Sun on Sunday Aamer Anwar.

Here they summarise their thoughts on the debate and pick out what they feel were the main points to come out of it.
