The PRCA’s chief executive will examine attitudes to censorship and the development of free speech as part of Westminster’s Public Relations BA.

The university is one of 11 that have negotiated with the PRCA to offer PR degrees as 'partner universities'.

Ingham said: ‘Free speech and censorship are very important and topical areas, with injunctions and accusations of invasions of privacy an almost weekly occurrence in the media. I expect a good level of healthy debate and discussion.’

Simon Goldsworthy, senior lecturer in public communication at the University of Westminster and joint course leader of the BA in Public Relations, said:  ‘Francis has always been an excellent and active friend to the university.

'We benefit greatly from being one of the PRCA’s partner universities, and I look forward to having such a distinguished communications professional on board.’
