A code of conduct

The Independent Online
With newspapers still facing a strong mood of public scepticism and hostility to press intrusion, we are today publishing the Press Complaints Commission code of conduct to which The Independent and Express, like other newspapers, are signatories. (See page 6.)

Many readers may be unaware of the code, at least in detail, and therefore unable to judge our actions against it. We reaffirm our commitment to its rules and to its spirit and promise readers that any rulings made by the PCC against us will be prominently reported on our news pages.
