Downing St tonight insisted David Cameron had yet to decided whether the Government will bring in new laws to govern the press.
The Mail on Sunday reports that the Prime Minister is set to resist calls for any new legislation.
But a No.10 spokesman told PoliticsHome:
“The Prime Minister has not made any decisions about his response to the Leveson report and will consider it in due course.”
The paper reports 'well-placed sources' saying the Prime Minister will reject any calls for full-blown legislation and will only accept a recommendation for a 'legal lite' option of tweaking existing laws.
The director of the Hacked Off campaign, Professor Brian Cathcart, claimed the Mail's story was "wishful thinking" which showed "sections of the press are desperate and isolated".
