Harriet Harman MP, Labour's Deputy Leader and Shadow Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, commenting on the Leveson Inquiry revelations today, said:
“Further information is set to come out under the forensic questioning at the Leveson Inquiry, and that inquiry must be allowed to take its course.
"But it is clear from today’s evidence that David Cameron gave responsibility to Jeremy Hunt for deciding on the BSkyB bid when he knew only too well that the Culture Secretary was actively supporting the bid. The Prime Minister should never have given him the job.
"It is clear that Jeremy Hunt was not the impartial arbiter he was required to be, and he should already have resigned.”
