Commons committee may recall witnesses in NotW hacking scandal

August 14, 2011 - London

Britain's House of Commons Committee will consider recalling key witnesses in the News of the World hacking scandal this week.

The Committee is expected to request three former News of the World executives to give fresh evidence, when Parliament returns next month. News International chairman James Murdoch will not be recalled until other witnesses have been heard.

The cross-party committee wrote to former News of the World editor Colin Myler and the legal manager Tom Crone after they claimed that Murdoch had misled MPs during his evidence session last month, The Daily Express reports.

Jon Chapman, who is News International's head of legal affairs, will also be recalled to appear before the committee.
