UK's Cameron says would give evidence in hacking probe

July 13, 2011 14:39

LONDON - Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron said on Wednesday he would be prepared to give evidence to a judge-led inquiry into phone hacking allegations at Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

When asked in parliament whether he would do so if asked, Cameron replied: "Of course."

Later in the day parliament will urge Murdoch to drop plans to further expand his media empire in a move unthinkable before the phone hacking scandal exploded just two weeks ago.

The opposition motion against News Corp's bid to buyout BSkyB is not legally binding but it reflects public disgust at revelations one of Murdoch's newspapers hacked into the telephones of relatives of war dead and of a murdered girl.
