Tory MP Louise Mensch has called for the government to consider a form of subsidy to support the ailing local newspaper market, arguing that community-level coverage is still far more powerful than a “Facebook campaign and a couple of tweets”.

Mensch, who led a private members’ debate in Westminster Hall on Wednesday, said that “now is not the time to wipe out our local press” as doing so would represent a “threat to democracy”.
