Prime Minister David Cameron has said he feels "uneasy" about the development of privacy law in the UK via court injunctions which stop the media reporting on the private lives of public figures.
He argued that Parliament, not judges, should decide on the balance between the freedom of the press and the right to privacy.
Cameron was challenged about the use of injunctions during a question-and-answer session at the General Motors factory in Luton, BBC News reports.
He said that judges were using cases based on the Human Rights Act to develop a privacy law that left him feeling "a little uneasy".
However, Mr Cameron admitted he had not got all the the answers and said he needed to think some more about it.
Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming has said he may use parliamentary privilege to name some of those covered by privacy injunctions.
