11 May 2012

Harriet HarmanHarriet Harman MP, Labour's Shadow Culture Secretary, responding to the allegations that Jeremy Hunt asked Fred Michel to privately advise him and No. 10 on positioning on phone hacking, said:

"People will be disgusted at the prospect of Jeremy Hunt and No. 10 colluding with News Corporation to avoid a public inquiry into phone hacking.

"Jeremy Hunt was not on the side of victims and their families. Instead, he wanted it swept under the carpet because he was straining every sinew to support News Corporation's bid for BSkyB."
