No comment please, we're Newsquest

Press Gazette editor Dominic Ponsford on asking Newsquest to respond to questions about the ending of its final salary pension scheme: "Over the last two days, Press Gazette has attempted to put questions to chief executive Paul Davidson - only to be told that he is not available and that no-one else can deal with our enquiries. This is the UK’s second biggest regional newspaper publisher, which employs more than 5,000 people. It would not expect its own journalists to accept such a response if they were investigating one of the companies they report on."

HoldtheFrontPage:"Newsquest has so far made no public comment on the story, which surfaced on the NUJ's website earlier today. HoldtheFrontPage has contacted the office of Newsquest chief executive Paul Davidson for comment but he was unavailable at the time of publication."
says it
"has attempted to speak to Newsquest about the allegations, but has so far been unable to get a response and told those who can comment are unavailable."
