The National Union of Journalists has become the latest organisation to criticise the Press Complaints Commission’s inquiry into alleged phone hacking by the News of the World.

Delegates attending the union’s annual policy-making conference this weekend passed a motion condemning the PCC for its “failure to mount a proper investigation into the evidence of widespread telephone tapping by the News of the World.”

The motion said the union’s Annual Delegates Meeting was “unsurprised by the failure” and instructed the National Executive Committee of the NUJ to write to the PCC: “Expressing the hope that the new chairman of the PCC and the new director will take the results of the ongoing PCC review more seriously.”
