News International and Phone-hacking

HC 903-I, Eleventh Report of Session 2010-12 - Volume I: Report, Together with Formal Minutes

House of Commons - Culture, Media and Sport Committee
TSO (The Stationery Office)

The report 'News International and Phone-hacking (HC 903-I)' concentrates on the issue of whether witnesses have previously misled a select committee of the House of Commons over the extent and knowledge of phone-hacking.

The Committee concludes:

  • several individuals misled the Committee in 2009 and more recently;

  • the News of the World and News International corporately misled the Committee about the true nature and extent of the internal investigations they carried out into phone-hacking;

  • statements were not fully truthful; and

  • documents were withehld.

The companies' directors - including Rupert Murdoch and James Murdoch - should be prepared to take responsibility for these failings.

The Committee reports its findings for the House of Commons to decide whether a contempt has been committed and, if so, what punishment should be imposed.
