16 August 2011

The Culture Media and Sport Committee met today Tuesday 16 August 2011 to discuss the evidence it has received in response to its requests for further information and clarification, in its work on phone hacking.

Having considered the responses it received as a whole, the Committee has decided to call Tom Crone, Colin Myler, Daniel Cloke and John Chapman to give further evidence on Tuesday 6 September. Depending on their evidence under questioning, the Committee may also have further questions for James Murdoch and others.

The Committee has also decided to write to Stuart Kuttner, Les Hinton, Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks, to ask them whether they wish to add anything to or amend any of the evidence they have previously given to the Committee. It is also writing to Lawrence Abramson, law firm Burton Copeland, and law firm Farrer & Co. with further questions arising from the evidence it has received so far.

The Committee will consider all the further evidence it gathers and decide on further action it will take in due course.

The Committee is today publishing the evidence it has received from News Corporation, Rebekah Brooks, Colin Myler, Tom Crone, Jon Chapman, law firm Harbottle and Lewis, the Press Complaints Commission, Mark Lewis, and law firm Linklaters - see below.
