PM's evidence to the Leveson Inquiry

MPs have conducted a Westminster Hall debate on the prime minister's evidence to the Leveson Inquiry on 13 November 2012.

The debate was led by the Labour MP for Rhondda, Chris Bryant, who has said David Cameron has "something to hide" over his correspondence with former News International chief Rebekah Brooks and the prime minister's former Downing Street communications chief Andy Coulson.

Mr Cameron has refused to answer questions from Mr Bryant about whether unpublished correspondence existed, saying the MP still owed him apology for an earlier accusation in April that he had misled Parliament.

Much of Lord Justice Leveson's inquiry was taken up with questions about links between politicians and Rupert Murdoch's News International media company.

Two text messages from Mrs Brooks to Mr Cameron, now passed on to the Leveson Inquiry, have recently been published by the Mail on Sunday.
