Guardian injunction: Liberal Democrats table urgent question

This pings in to my inbox from the Liberal Democrat press office:

In light of the injunction against the Guardian featured on its front page today, the Lib Dems have this morning requested an Urgent Question and debate on the reporting of parliamentary proceedings. My understanding is the Speaker will decide after midday today if he is happy to allow these to proceed. If this were to happen, the question would be asked this afternoon and the debate would take place tomorrow.

UQ – David Heath
I would be grateful if you would give consideration to the following Urgent Question to the Lord Chancellor:
β€œTo ask the Lord Chancellor if he will make a statement on the prevention of reporting of parliamentary proceedings by means of legal injunction.”

SO24 – Paul Burstow
I would be grateful if you would give consideration to an urgent debate under Standing Order 24 on the freedom to report on Parliamentary Proceedings.

  1. Have you got an authoritative source for this that I can use for Wikipedia, rather than linking to your blog, which will get taken down eventually?
