NUJ statement on DUP and Amanda Ferguson

  • 10 Oct 2022

Union warns of the "dangerous precedent" preventing access to cover the DUP conference would have caused.

"Amanda is a distinguished reporter and commentator and writes for a number of high profile national and international publishers. The NUJ fully supports her right, and the right of all journalists, to cover events – such as the DUP party conference – that are in the public interest.

"While the NUJ welcomes the decision to overturn the attempt to exclude her, it should not have happened in the first place and must not happen again."
