Chris Bryant: ...vast majority of us agree, given the little bits and pieces that we have managed to glean from Leveson 1, that there was a time when the Metropolitan police, to all intents and purposes, were a partially owned subsidiary of News International. Metropolitan police staff went to work for News International. When they had finished working for News International, they went back to work for the...

Sky: 21ST Century Fox Takeover Bid (20 Dec 2016)

Ed Miliband: ...on its head. In 2011, this House unanimously urged the withdrawal of the bid for Sky by Rupert Murdoch. In 2012, Ofcom published a damning assessment of James Murdoch’s behaviour in the running of News International.

Policing and Crime Bill - Report (30 Nov 2016)

Lord Paddick: ...interests of brevity, as no doubt these points will be covered by other noble Lords, I will focus on just one element.

My solicitors contacted the Metropolitan Police, who said...

Privileges (27 Oct 2016)

Damian Collins: ...hacking at the News of the World, one simple thing is really clear, and it shines out in the Privileges Committee’s report as well: the evidence that condemned Colin Myler and Tom Crone—that condemned News International—always existed within the company itself and was always within reach of the executives of that company. In fact, the killer piece of evidence, which the...

Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward: Economy (31 May 2016)

John Mason: I am delighted that we are debating the economy early in the new session. Keith Brown’s appointment shows how important the SNP Government considers the economy to be.

For example, the number of modern apprenticeships is going up from...

The hon. Gentleman referred to News International, and the situation in Wales is something of a monopoly. Although other newspaper companies exist— the hon. Member for Ceredigion (Mr...

BBC: Finance and Independence — Motion to Take Note (10 Sep 2015)

Lord Cashman: some of the multinationals and financial institutions of this country, you will see that they pale into insignificance.

Lord Patten of Barnes: ...say the same about my confidence in some of their colleagues and I wish I had a little more confidence in some the adolescent ideologues who dominate so much of this debate with the encouragement of News International and Mr Murdoch’s empire.

Bills Presented: Backbench Business — Select Committee on Governance of the House (10 Sep 2014)

Paul Farrelly: from the Government or from within the House.
