MPs to question Wade and others on phone tapping
News International has confirmed to the Media Select Committee that it is sending a cast of three to answer questions next Tuesday – former Sun editor Rebekah Wade, the current News of the World editor Colin Myler and a senior News International lawyer.
Les Hinton, who some on the committee think misled them in his last evidence, has emailed from the US to say he doesn’t work for News International any more and has nothing to add.
The committee doesn’t agree and intends to press him to come.
They’re also determined to get Andy Coulson along too. This sounds like a committee with the bit between its teeth.
Parliament rises on Tuesday but the committee can decide to work on for longer into the summer and may well do so.
