Newspaper and magazine publishers have been refused an urgent injunction to stop ministers going to the Privy Council later this afternoon to seek the Queen's approval for a cross-party royal charter to regulate the press.
Lord Dyson, Master of the Rolls, sitting with two other Court of Appeal judges, refused to grant an interim order pending further legal action.
The judge said: "I have considered this request with Lord Justice Moore-Bick and Lord Justice Elias.
"We are not willing to grant interim relief 'administratively' pending an application for permission to appeal."
