Dear Prime Minister’s Office,

I am writing to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act for the number of meetings the Prime Minister has held with national newspaper editors or proprietors since the Leveson Inquiry hearings began on 24 July 2012 until now (18 October 2012).
I would like to know who he has met, from which newspapers and how frequently. If possible I would also like to know whether these meetings took place in Downing St, at Chequers, at Newspaper offices or at events such as the Party Conference.

Yours faithfully,

Prof. Richard Sambrook
