- Two leading UK media owner organisations, the Newspaper Society and the Periodical Publishers Association, have announced plans for a strategic alliance across their respective sectors, which have combined revenue of £9bn.

The NS, which represents regional and local newspapers in the UK, and the PPA, which represents magazine and business information publishing, will initially focus on four initiatives: European Union representation, UK public affairs, the establishment of a national training organisation and legal advice.

The four initiatives, agreed in principal by the two bodies, were announced in a joint statement this evening (Wednesday) by NS director David Newell and PPA chief executive Ian Locks.

"We believe that, in forging these links for the future we can add considerable value for the membership of both organisations by strengthening still further our representations to government across a broad range of general issues and by seeking to avoid replication of effort."
