Therese Coffey

Conservative MP for Suffolk Coastal

Damian Collins

Conservative MP for Folkestone and Hythe

Paul Farrelly

Labour MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme

Pursued a career in the City before becoming a financial journalist with the Independent on Sunday and Observer and elected an MP in 2001. Tough inquisitor who says role in Parliament is to ask “awkward questions” and “expose wrongdoing”.

Alan Keen

Labour MP for Feltham and Heston

Adrian Sanders

Tom Watson

Tenacious pursuit of phone hacking issue in Parliament helped blow scandal wide open. Says focus is now on James Murdoch’s alleged cover-up. Has been at war with News International since 2006 when he quit as a junior minister in failed Brownite coup against Tony Blair.

Select committee – 10 questions

BBC News website’s politics editor, Brian Wheeler, on what MPs might want to ask Rupert and James Murdoch about the phone hacking scandal?

1. When did you learn that phone hacking at the News of the World was not confined to one rogue reporter as senior News International executive Les Hinton – giving evidence to the culture committee in 2007 – claimed?

2. Did Mr Hinton, who has since stood down from his job, mislead Parliament?

3. James Murdoch, in a statement made on 7 July this year, said the News of the World “made statements to Parliament without being in full possession of the facts”. But wasn’t it the case that the paper was in possession of important facts that it failed to disclose to MPs?

4. Why did News International not hand over e-mails containing evidence of alleged illegality by its staff to police in spring 2007 when it gave them to solicitors Harbottle and Lewis for review?

5. Which executives at News International were aware of the e-mails in 2007?

6. Did Harbottle & Lewis give any advice to News International on the alleged criminal activity described in the e-mails?

7. How was it that James Murdoch did not have the full picture of wrongdoing at the News of the World until recently (as he says)?

8. Why did News International pay Gordon Taylor, head of the Professional Footballers Association, and others £1m in damages in 2009? Was it to buy their silence?

9. James Murdoch has admitted News International failed to get to the bottom of “repeated wrongdoing” at the News of the World. Who is responsible and are their positions now untenable?

10. The former head of the Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism command, Peter Clarke, last week accused News International of deliberately trying to thwart the 2005 police investigation into hacking. And Assistant Commissioner John Yates said the company “appears to have failed to co-operate” in his review of the case. Do you accept this?
