Scotsman.com Reports Lynne Jones, the Birmingham Selly Oak MP, wants authors and publishers to stop supermarkets undercutting other outlets by two-thirds. She Said "I therefore call on publishers and best-selling authors like JK Rowling to consider the threat to the viability of bookshops of such practices offering a full range of titles and to set terms in publishing contracts to prevent this extreme discounting."
Meanwhile, ten MPs, led by East Dunbartonshire Liberal Democrat Jo Swinson, have put down another EDM defending Ms Rowling against criticism from the Pope that her books might encourage children to become interest in the occult.
