This is the exchange between Sir George and the Leader of the Commons:

Sir George Young (North-West Hampshire) (Con): Is the Leader of the House as appalled as I am at the daily scenes of harassment by the paparazzi of an ordinary citizen of this country? Will he arrange for an early debate so that the House can reflect whether adequate powers are available to deal with this wholly unacceptable behaviour?

Mr. Straw: I am, indeed, absolutely appalled by the scenes. I commend News International for saying that it will have nothing to do with the photographs, but we need to hear from all other newspaper groups in this country and abroad that they will ban this practice. I will certainly look into whether we can find time to debate this important issue.

***

"I was delighted to hear Jack's reply to my question and propose to follow this up. They have gone over the top here and we need tougher sanctions against this form of behaviour".
